The host is Windows/XP with service pack 3, guest is Solaris 10 and VirtualBox is 1.6.2. After defining port forwarding as below,

Is your Solaris guest using the Intel network adapter? Is port 6631 in use on the host?

I changed the network adapter to PCnet-FAST III(Am79c973) from Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop (82540EM), re-installed Solaris and defined port forwarding.
Then no crash occurs.

Thanks for the comment by erstazi.

I followed the suggestion of changing the network adapter to PCnet-FASTII from the Intel Pro/1000 MT Desktop. Next I just went in and moved /etc/dhcp.e1000g0 to /etc/dhcp.pcn0, and /etc/hostname.e1000g0 to /etc/hostname.pcn0. After a quick reboot to confirm it boots up properly, everything is good.

I will close this bug. We are aware that port forwarding should be possible without these VBoxManage setextradata hacks and this is actually on our TODO list.
