  1. You're missing something in your explanation. 192.168.1.* and 192.168.56.* are not in the same subnet if you're using a /24 mask, so your normal OS shouldn't of been able to reach that webpage unless it was cached from the first time you got it to work before making this video.

  2. That did not worked for me. I used Ubuntu as a host computer. It was not possible to set up the "Host-only adapter" in VirtualBox surprisingly.
