I've been reading online about networking with virtual box 4. I would like some advice.

I have a guest Ubuntu with apache and a Windows 7 machine with IIS. I want to make the host and guest comunicate with each other for testing and "educational" purpouses. So far i used the bridget mode and it worked fine but my machine was part of my company Network.

I would like a way to make some private network with the host and the guest but also have internet connection on both using the host's internet connection.

Is this possible?

You can do this through NAT instead of Bridge mode, but you will need to adjust config files to allow ports per VM, last time I checked NAT controls don't existing in the GUI, but I could be wrong.

If bridge is acceptable though it will be your simplest way.
