So I’m trying to set up a pen test lab in virtual box on my windows 7 host.

I have 3 guest OS's installed:

  1. BackTrack5
  2. CentOS 5 Server/Snort (My Snortbox)
  3. Windows XP (Unpatched)

I have 3 Ethernet adapters created IP'S

  • 192.168.191.1
  • 192.168.127.1
  • 192.168.56.1

My goal is to use BackTrack5 to nmap the Windowss XP guest and have the CentOS Snort box sniff the network.

I’m new to networking and virtualization and I need help setting up my virtual network to get this to work. What should I do?

CentOS:

  • Adapter1: NAT
  • Adapter2: Host-only
  • Adapter3: Internal Network

Backtrack:

  • Adapter1: Internal Network

Windows XP:

  • Adapter1: Internal Network

Also factor in that I’m on a University network with a ridiculous firewall so I need to stay all within the host.

I am really curious about this because I will be doing similar stuff (hopefully) when I go to college next year.. –  ekaj Mar 25 '12 at 3:46
