Version 4.1.14 breaks network support on Openstep 4.2

Reported by: poingg Owned by:
Priority: major Component: network
Version: VirtualBox 4.1.14 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: Mac OS X


After upgrading do 4.1.14, networking stopped working. I downgraded Virtualbox back to 4.1.12 and it's working again.

This is valid both for NAT and bridged adapter modes

Could you please try if it works with PRO/1000 adapters instead of PCNet? If you could provide the description of how you test the network along with the internal capture file made during the test it would be very much appreciated. See for the info on how to enable internal capture. Do not forget to disable it after the test.

I'm seeing a similar behavior. I just wanted to mention that the PRO/1000 adapter is not an option. OPENSTEP 4.2 does not support the PRO/1000 adapter and only provides drivers for the AMD PCNet adapter.

I'll try to do the internal capture bit and post the details as I have more time to test it.

That's the version I'm using. I enabled the capture, started the VM and then opened a terminal and started pinging (the NAT gateway address)

Attached is the pcap file. It seems able to do arp requests and get an arp response but that's it. No actual ping is captured.

This is still an issue under 4.3.6 r91406

This issue remains under 4.3.8 r92456. It would be great to see this break loose and start working.

comment:6 Changed 13 months ago by jdashton
