My question is, is this because Linux Mint is set to use a TCP connection and because I used UDP it conflicted?
No. UDP is the correct protocol.
how can I remedy this the next time I make that UDP selection?
Try a different server.

When VM exits does it release the full memory it was using " 2 gB " back to Linux Mint ?
Yes, it should but the linux kernel can actually hang on to it until it's needed. This fools a lot of people into thinking they have a memory leak when it's just the kernel caching.

Wine is rubbish Wine worked for a project where VirtualBox failed. VMware or something else might have worked, VirtualBox did not. In your case, yes, that's probably true, but it isn't accurate for the majority. I've been using VMs for many years with little or no trouble whatsoever. I feel that th...
