I have VirtualBox installed in Windows 8. In VirtualBox I have two Kali Linux 2.0 OSs. Both have access to the internet, but I can't seem to ping them. My home computer uses cell phone tethering for internet and not a router. I'm having issues with whether to use bridged or host networking options in VirtualBox. The IP addresses are coming back the same, and I need to ping the address of one Kali Linux system from the other, all inside of VirtualBox.

  • Can you provide more information on your setup? Are you talking about two VBs on the same computer or two separate computers? Is the second Debian a temporary installation just to run some tests? What is the host OS?
