This blog post shows how to set-up Kali and Kioptrix on VirtualBox for scanning and enumeration. I feel that this post is necessary, because the many how-to instructions on the Internet about this topic either don’t work or are unnecessarily complex.
I assume that you have already:
- Installed VirtualBox (I’m using version 6.1.16).
- Created a Kali Linux virtual machine (version 2020.3).
- Downloaded Kioptrix Level 1 from https://www.vulnhub.com/entry/kioptrix-level-1-1,22/ and unzipped it (I use 7-Zip as file archiver).
Create a new virtual machine for Kioptrix Level 1
Modify default network settings
Discover Kioptrix from Kali with netdiscover
