You CAN share IP addresses between multiple guests, but unless you have a good
reason to do so you shouldn't.
The reason why it is discuraged is because each guest can disturb the other
one by taking over ports.
E.g. in first guest you start sshd, in second guest you can't do so anymore
unless you run sshd on different ports for both guests.
