Dear Sir or Madam,
As you may know I am doing to Python & Ethical Hacking course. Recently, I re-installed my virtual machine to fix the “SMBus controller is disable” error which was preventing my Kali Linux VM from booting. After a few days, everything was working flawlessly but today when I booted Kali, it didn’t have an internet connection. When I tried to browse the internet via the pre-installed Firefox browser, I was unable to do this action. I decided to check also my Windows 10 VM and when I booted it, I noticed that the internet works without any issue. Thank you a lot for your help in advance! Have a nice day!September 2, 2021 at 6:06 pm #58078
Can you show the results of:
ifconfig and route -n in kali
Can you share a screenshot of the Network settings used in VMware for kali?

I am sorry for answering your questions about my issues with my internet connection of the Kali Linux virtual machine. Sometimes the internet connection works and sometimes it does not. When I run the ifconfig command, it does not show the eth0 interface. Instead of it, it shows me the lo interface. Previously, I decided to run “ifconfig eth0 up” and then it shows up but I am still not getting am internet connection and also I would like to mention that when I run the “route -n” command while I am not having an internet connection, it does not show any gateway IP address. Thank you a lot again for your help in advance!
PS: I would also like to share a photo of the network settings of my Kali VM.

Do you have an antivirus installed in your host? I mean other than defender. If not then disable the firewall before starting kali and try it again.

I use Windows as my host OS and I use Windows Defender and Avast Free Antivirus. I would like to also mention that my Windows VM which is also in VMware has an internet connection.

Did you try what I said? Kali is a hacking tool so some AVs will flag it as malware, while a windows virtual machine is inoffensive from an AV perspective.

I am using Avast Free Antivirus and to fix the issue, I decided to re-install my VM. Sometimes the internet is working just fine so I don’t think the problem was because of the Windows Defender. Can I also ask you if there is a Kali Linux customized by zSecurity VM image but for Oracle VirtualBox. Because I would like to switch from VMWare to Oracle VirtualBox. Thank you again for your help!

There’s no virtualbox image, the latest custom kali si for VMware only.
