DHCP options are completely ignored for Host-Only and NatNetwork

Reported by: Kriston Owned by:
Component: network Version: VirtualBox 4.3.30
Keywords: host-only natnetwork nat network Cc:
Guest type: all Host type: Windows


DHCP options are ignored for Host-Only and NATNetwork. We always get the original defaults no matter what we put in these settings.

From Oracle VM VirtualBox Manager, go to File...Preferences. Select Network. Select Host-Only Networks. Select VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter. Click the screwdriver tool icon. Under Adapter, put something IPv4 Address, IPv4 Network Mask Under DHCP Server, put Server Address:, Server Mask, lower address bound, upper address bound Click OK.

Set your Windows guest to use only the Host-Only Networking adapter. Now try to boot Windows or another guest host that happens to have DHCP enabled.

Expected behavior: We should be getting 10.10.1.x.

Actual behavior: The guest will inexplicably receive an IP address from the Host-Only Network device that looks like the original defaults, namely in the 192.168.56.x range.

This same behavior happens in NatNetwork.

Please, provide your VirtualBox.xml file.

I have a workaround. This might instead be a workflow or documentation problem, not an actual bug in the software's network configuration. When I fully delete NatNetwork and the Host-Only interface and re-add them, my intended network settings work.

You can close this ticket.
