VirtualBox NAT settings: How to configure so they don’t have same IPs?

I am writing this article because I have been through a configuration problem while setting up NAT network in VirtualBox.
The problem: Both my machines getting the same IP addresses after selecting NAT as the network for both. I just start using VirtualBox, I used to use VMware.

To solve this problem, follow these steps:

You need to make NAT networks active. To do that go to Preferences -> Adds new NAT network.

Virtualbox network settings NAT Virtualbox network settings NAT 1


Enable this network and Click Ok.
Virtualbox network settings NAT 2


Once this is done, Go to your virtual Machines settings.

Virtualbox network settings NAT 3


Select the NAT network from the Network Option.

Virtualbox network settings NAT 4


In the name dropdown list select NatNetwork, the one you made active before. Select the adapter type, By default,it’s PCnet-FAST III, works fine for me. Now Turn on the machines.

Virtualbox network settings NAT 5

 

Now, both of your virtual machines will have different IPs.
Problem Solved!
