Networking with VirtualBox
Because the GUI does not currently support this, implementation of all network settings in the GUI is the major point I would add to the wish list for Innotek. This said, Innotek's competitors haven't done a better job. Setting up networking on Xen is equally complex, and VMware only offers a command-line tool called vmware-config.pl for virtual networks, although the tool can set up multiple NAT, host-only, and bridged-mode networks with just a few prompts.
A solution might be just around the corner: Rumor has it that Innotek is working hard on the network configuration. If you prefer not to wait, you will be well rewarded for the work you put in. After you have the VirtualBox set up properly, you can look forward to fast and stable virtual systems.
