Kali Linux – Virtualbox – 2 network adapters (NAT & Host-Only) – dhcp

To make two network adapters in Kali Linux work with dhcp use the following configuration:

Edit /etc/network/interfaces
nano /etc/network/interfaces
Your config should look like this
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

source /etc/network/interfaces.d/*

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

auto eth1
iface eth1 inet dhcp

Save your file by pressing [strg] + [x] and then press [y] and [Enter]


It is possible that your interfaces are named different (maybe eth1 and eth2). Check this by running one of the following commands and customize your configuration according to the interface names
