[VM Completed on Nov 11, 2016]
First thing I'm going to point out is that this was the first machine I rooted in awhile. My wife gave birth to our first child in March and I stepped away from all this. So I was a little rusty, but things started to work once I sat and thought about it. Here we go!
So the VM is set to DHCP and after a quick scavenger hunt, I found it. So naturally nmap is the next step. Since these aren't production systems, I just do a generic, lazy, full blown nmap scan to make sure I don't miss anything.
