VirtualBox, though supported by Oracle, is also a community-driven project as well. There are some helpful links that I recommend you bookmark and use in the future. People just like you all contribute to make it a great piece of software, and if you feel you have an improvement to recommend or provide, don’t hesitate to collaborate with their community.

Once installed, please feel free to use Chapter 01 to get you more acquainted with it: Chapter 01 Chapter 06 (Virtual Networking)
