Description

Hello,

I use VirtualBox 4.1.16, no crash guest virtual machine found This is an excellent product !.

VirtualBox can disable / enable the network on the machine guest, OK. I propose integrated into VirtualBox, the possiblity user to enable the network of the guest machine for a limited time, ie, the machine guest network is automatically disabled after some time (the life choosed by user)(eg after five minutes the machine guest's network is automatically disabled until user re enable the network guest machine since virtualbox's panel ).

Thank.

original lingue : J'utilise Virtualbox 4.1.16 , aucun crash de machine guest virtuelle constaté, c'est un excellent produit.

VirtualBox capable de désactive/active le réseau sur la machine guest. Je propose d'intégré dans VirtualBox , la possibilité d'activer le réseau de la machine guest pour un temps limité (le temps choisit par l'utilisateur) c'est à dire , il se désactive automatiquement au bout d'un certain temps (exemple au bout de 5 minutes) jusqu'a l'intervention de l'utilisateur depuis le tableau de bord.

This is not a feature we will implement in VirtualBox as this can be already achieved with the current means. Just use the command line utility VBoxManage in a script and do something like

sleep 120
VBoxManage controlvm VM_NAME  setlinkstate1 off

This will disable the 1st network card after 120 seconds.

It's work good , but don't work if the guest machine have flag SAVED.

How disable the network when guest machine is saved ?
