VirtualBox Network Bug

Reported by: sukavi Owned by:
Component: network Version: VirtualBox 5.0.40
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: all Host type: Linux


The DHCP server or service that routes networks from the guest to the host does not run on host's startup and when started, it sometimes runs into errors. For a previously created guest to access the network, I have to go to

file->preferences->Network->Nat Networks/Host-only Networks(choose any)->Choose a network->Edit Selected Network->Ok

After this, the guest will only access the internet for a few minutes then lose connectivity. Sometimes the guest might also reboot severally.

You description is vague. You refer to HostOnly networks, yet later you talk about internet access, which doesn't make sense at all, because you don't have internet access with a HostOnly network. It's host to guest. Only.

Also, a VBox.log (zipped) is missing. Please see the instructions in the page where you filed the bug report and post the information requested there.
