VirtualBox can't ping host

Last Modified: 2018-06-29
I setup my first guest machine through Windows OpenBox.  It's setup with NAT by default.  However, a simple ping to the host machine does not respond.  I want the host to share a folder and have the guest access it.  I also want remote desktop functioning on the guest machine.
