    143143=== Bridged networking vs. NAT ===

    145 There are two options for having the host and guest share the physical interface, NAT or bridged. NAT is less obtrusive but bridged provides more capability to the guest. See this discussion of the '''[http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch06.html differences between NAT and bridged modes]'''. The installation procedure shows bridged setup (because everyone who we know who is using !VirtualBox is using bridged networking...).
     145There are two options for having the host and guest share the physical interface, NAT or bridged. NAT is less obtrusive but bridged provides more capability to the guest. For instance, with a bridged connection, one can run a server in the guest that can be accessed from other machines. See this discussion of the '''[http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch06.html differences between NAT and bridged modes]'''. The installation procedure offers an option, but recommends NAT to start with, as it works with more network arrangements. In particular, '''''NAT works with !WiFi, where bridged may not'''''.
