Bridged Adapter not working in VBox setup to run Kali 17.3 x64


I have set up a Kali machine in my vbox in windows, but during the "Configuring the network" step in the installation, it shows me an error that it cannot configure the network properly. When the installation is complete, i cant use the internet either.

So what's the problem? As Kali is a tool for experienced sysadmins you should not have any trouble setting up the networking by hand.

Right, of course. I didnt mention any details or background about myself or anything because honestly, when i posted the question is was sort of kind of stoned :P So here it goes. Im actually doing to a course on ethical hacking which has setting up of kali as its prerequisite. So no, im definitely not an experienced sysadmin which is why im having trouble manually/configuring it at all. I had done it once before, back in december, and i was able to connect to the internet back then. but now,im experiencing other issues. I also have an Ubuntu machine running in the Vbox, but i can run the internet there smoothly, no issues.

So, when you're installing kali you get the error? If so, just select 'continue without network connection'. Kali has networking turned off.

I don't run Kali. Have no wish to. So no. I do not know what steps to take in Kali to turn on networking. But I bet I could find how by just google searching for it.

Edit: Baby Steps. Don't hurt yourself.

Hey WelcomeToYourLife,

I notice that in your first post you mention in the title that you're using the Bridged Adapter option in VBox. This option basically makes your VBox VM look like a different machine with its own physical network adapter to whatever LAN you're connected to. So make sure you're not using the same virtual MAC address (VBox config for Kali) as for another simultaneously running VM, and make sure to configure your router/switch accordingly so it accepts the communication attempt from the Kali VM (DHCP if that's what you're using, MAC filtering ... etc. ...).

Cheers.

You have to explicitly start the networking service with Kali, because it's disabled by default. It doesn't matter how it's set up during the install. It's still disabled after the install. If you know how to use Kali, you should know how to start up networking.
