Ticket #1470 (closed defect: fixed)
DNS Resolver/NAT does not work if a local DNS is running (Linux Host, Any Guest) => Fixed in 2.1.0
|Reported by:||znerol||Owned by:|
If the host system is setup in a way that it uses its own (caching) DNS server (i.e. /etc/resolv.conf contains only the line "nameserver 127.0.0.1") virtualbox guests using nat will not be able to resolve names using the DNS assigned by dhcp (10.0.2.3). However resolving using the standart gateway (10.0.2.2) works without problems from within guest systems. This issue is probably related to #377 and #421.
The relevant entry in the log looks like this for guests refusing to resolve via 10.0.N.3:
00:03:29.873 NAT: DNS address: 127.0.0.1
Im running virtualbox 1.5.6_OSE on Debian Lenny (testing). I did not test version 1.6.0.
