Question the giver program and virtual machines


if anyone can send me in the proper direction for this question, I would be grateful. I installed the newest Linux mint on the newest version of virtual box. I'm have trouble with program "giver" recognizing the virtual machines. I'm not sure if it has to do with the fact that, its using my mac's ip addresses or not. i have 2 other Linux mints installed on two other pc's on the same local network, and they recognize each other just fine. so my question is, does a virtual machine have to have its own ip address for program "giver" to recognize each other? maybe i have to change the network driver on vbox, but every time i do, i lose connection. at the moment, my network driver is set to NAT. thank you for any help in advanced.

Nat ought to work but try bridged just in case.

With a nat you are on a secondary network. The local machine would be in VM's subnet. It isn't bad just that you may have trouble getting to it.
