You can assign same workgroups for both computers and transfer them like they are in same network

or

You can use the shared folder future to transfer files. You can find the shared folders in Entire Network\Virtual Box Shared (or smt like it) and transfer your files without a problem.

You can also look for articles about it. There are plenty of them.

SSH

samba

DropBox or such (especially good if you're going to want sync'd files between the two and don't want to remember to run rsync)
