I have openSuse installed as a virtual machine(Oracle Virtual Box) on DeskTop(win 7), and another openSuse installed on as a virtual machine(Oracle Virtual Box) on my Laptop(win 8.1).

Please see the attached image, in which I have captured the various network adapter information.

I want to network these two VMs, please guide me in the right direction as how to achieve this.

The following is the additional information that may enable you to guide me. Desktop Host machine(win 7)

How about using bridged networking in VMWare and Virtual Box? You can assign IP on both VM at space 192.168.0.0/24 –  masegaloeh May 12 at 10:40
    
Thanks I will give it a go. –  Harbir May 12 at 11:11

You're going to want to look for "bridged" mod under network configuration in VirtualBox, without that VirtualBox will emulate a small network that nothing can directly communicate with.

Once in bridged mode they should be seen as extra computers to the Router/DHCP server pick up an IP address and you'll be able to communicate with everything on the network segment the host is on.
