I'm using Hadoop to do some data analysis for a university project. My university has kindly given me access to a Virtual Machine, which I access through a given IP address using PuTTY in Windows 8. Once connected, the system is running Ubuntu 64bit.

Before I put anything on this system I am testing it on my own laptop. I have Oracle's VirtualBox and a Ubuntu 64 bit installation on it.

As my "main work" is being done on the Virtual Machine the university has given me access to, thus far I'm using Hadoop on a single cluster (defying the whole point of the "big data analysis" part of my project). Is there a way for me to connect that virtual machine to my VirtualBox version of Ubuntu to at least demonstrate a cluster of two nodes, or is this impossible as they are not on the same network?
