Setup a virtual pen testing lab:Step-by-Step guide

Virtual penetration testing lab is a lab created on a single system using any virtualization software. It can be very helpful for people practising for CEH or similar certification. Any penetration testing lab has two machines, attacker and victim. In this lab we will set up Kali Linux as the attacker and Windows XP( most favourite victim machine ) as the victim. I am going to set up this lab in Vmware Workstation 9. Hope this will be helpful. First of all install Kali Linux and Windows XP in Vmware Workstation.
Shut them down. In the Vmware Workstation menu, SelectEdit”and click on Virtual Network editor. The window below will open showing the virtual network adapters. Click on “Add network”.
