VM won't start if port forwarding rule name has slash in it

Reported by: Chris Basler Owned by:
Component: network/NAT Version: VirtualBox 5.1.6
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: Linux Host type: Windows


I created a rule with a / in its name, which worked fine as long as the VM was running. When I was starting it the next day, the following error occurred:

NAT#0: configuration query for "HostPort" int failed (VERR_CFGM_VALUE_NOT_FOUND).

I think it would be nice if you would either prevent illegal characters from being entered, or escape/replace them where they cause this error.

  • Component changed from network to network/NAT

Did you use VBoxManage to create it?

This should be fixed for the next dot-dot release, hopefully. Please, can you give a recent test build a try?
