A short guide to networking in Virtual Box with Oracle Linux inside.

This post is intended to be a dummy guide, best practices, or whatever you call it…   about setting up a network while working with virtual boxes on a desk- or laptop. I was setting up a virtual box environment with several Virtual Boxes on my laptop, and as I’m not a network – specialist, I
