NatNetwork no longer supports VLANs => fixed in SVN/next 7.0.x maintenance

Reported by: paaguti-u Owned by:
Component: network/NAT Version: VirtualBox-7.0.10
Keywords: NatNetwork, VLAN Cc:
Guest type: all Host type: all


VirtualBox 6.x or earlier supported VLANs over a NatNetwork. I was able to create parallel connections when I connected more than one VM to the NatNetwork. For example, supposing eth0 was connected to the NatNetwork to access the Internet, on Linux I was able to create a eth0.100 to communicate over VLAN 100 to another VM connected to the NatNetwork.

This is much more convenient (and close to real-world scenarios) than creating two interfaces, one connected to a NatNetwork and one connected to an internal network, which is my current "work-around" for this "bug".

Can you attach a VBox.log of one of the affected VMs?

Without any logs I assume that you are using the Virtio Network device, for which VLAN support was indeed broken. Will be fixed in the next 7.0.x maintenance release, thanks for the report!

Hi paaguti-u,

We just released a new version of VirtualBox today. This issue should be fixed there. Closing it. Please leave a comment if it is still actual for you. As usual, builds are available on Downloads page. Thank you for reporting.
