    Yes, you can. I have done that.

    • In your virtual machine network settings, use bridged mode and not NAT.
    • Also, make sure you have specified the correct network adapter, in my case, it's Intel Server (not desktop).
    • Note your Mac id.
    • Configure your router to assign a fixed IP to your mac id. (for example,
    • Start your VM
    • Configure SAP GUIs on your colleagues' computers to use this IP.

    This way you can SSH into your ABAP server remotely as well.

      Thanks for reply!

      I found similar solution in that steps:

      • With the virtual machine turned off, I changed the network configuration by setting bridges insted of NAT.
      • After starting the server, I set the static IP of the same subnet as the PC that acts as HOST. For example, if the host has IP address 192.168.1.x then the GUEST machine address must have IP address 192.168.1.y
      • In addition to setting the primary IP address, I added another IPV4 configuration for the same network card with the address which is the one specified in the guide (this configuration is required).
      • At this point, in the hosts file, I modified the rule indicated in the guide where the IP address was reported with the new IP 192.168.1.y
      • I restarted the virtual machine to be sure that the new configurations had effect

      From that moment on, the server sap on my virtual machine was made accessible by all the PCs on the same local network with the IP address 192.168.1.y instead of indicated in the guide.

      The guide to which I refer is this:

    Hi Valerio, I haven't tested this. However, it is really an ORCL VirtualBox question, rather than an ABAP trial-specific question. I would try the VirtualBox guide:

    Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, Getting Started

    Also, check out the : Oracle VirtualBox Forum

    Best wishes
