I usually use virtualbox to run linux as guest on my windows. I now want to run linux as guest on a linux machine. I'm using virtualization for experimentation on networks. I was told that virtualbox isn't the best to be used in this case. Is there a better vm i can use ?

    Who told you not to use VirtualBox? It Works. – Xen2050 Feb 25 '15 at 11:16

You can use Virtualbox in Linux and run any linux based OS. I myself use Ubuntu and run Centos in Virtualbox, there isn't any issue.

  • is it possible to set up a whole virtual network including routers ? – lukas irides Feb 25 '15 at 11:22
  • Internet works fine inside Virtualbox but don't know the use of routers for Virtual Machine. Please elaborate. – Red Aura Feb 25 '15 at 12:56
  • i need to virtualize a newtwork(independent of internet), for e.g i'll run 3 virtual machine one of which will be a router and then send packets from one vm such that the packets reaching the second vm will go through the virtual router – lukas irides Feb 26 '15 at 14:59
