[vbox-dev] VLAN-Tagging on virtio_net linux guest / linux host

Hello all,

is there a chance to get 802.1Q VLANs working "as expected" on linux guests? I
tried all network adapter types for the guest but none worked. Someone on the
user-list told me that there may be a general problem with the packet length
in forwarding.
Indeed this topic is a lot more important for us than the former discussion
about the network performance and multiqueuing. Is there currently a solution?
Will there be one in the future? A solution based on the virtio_net guest
device would be sufficient for us.
Can we help somehow?
