  1. When the physical host device receives the data from the physical network, how does it know which one of the virtual devices who requested it? Does it use PAT as its network address translation?

  2. Wow, this is an incredibly easy to understand video. I'd had some trouble with my VMs and their installation, but I think that I might have set it to NAT — instead of Bridged. They were able to communicate, but not be seen from outside the Host. Honestly, I wish that I'd seen your video first, and not let the Manufacturers like VMWare convolute it so much.

  3. If we take Virtual Box as an example, you actually explained the "NAT Network" with the port forwarding mode and not "NAT".
    By default, Virtual Box DHCP assigns one and the same virtual IP in the NAT mode to multiple machines that is 10.0.2.15 and they cannot communicate with each other.

  4. If NAT resolves a public IP address to private IP address, where then would we need ARP? Please give me a scenario where these two protocols would be in use simultaneously?

  5. If I have just 2 computers that I want to link in a network (a 2-computer network), would I need a switch? So, what is the minimum number of systems that would require a switch to form a network segment?

  6. I appreciate your work a lot. This is my ‘go to’ channel for anything that’s unclear. Half of the network related problems I had have been answered on this channel itself 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

  7. Hey Sunny, this was very useful information, Is there any resource or blog which can explain how to configure NAT for VMware host

  8. Hi, how do these VM communicates with GNS3 ?
    It is possible to have a video on it, as it's always about virtualization.
    Thank you

  9. how come when I started 2 VMs (Linux Kali each) on my Windows 10 Machine, they both got the same IP addresses no matter what Network Connection Mode I chose?

  10. thank you very much sir, your explanation is truly very impressive expecting more lectures on types of virtualization like binary virtualization, para virtualization , full virtualization so on i have seen the other videos those are bit confusing like differentiation between them is not properly presented if you made a video on these topics i will be blessed thank you very much for the excellent support

  11. Hello Sunny, really enjoying your teaching videos, fantastic way to brush up the basics, thank you very much for the clear explanation and with animations 🙂 you are one of the best teachers 🙂
