Ticket #2760 (new defect)
Feature request: direc t tun/tap support not available since 2.1.0
|Reported by:||schinkelm||Owned by:|
It was very nice that virtualbox supported the direct usage of tun/tap interfaces and NOT used another driver which means one more possible point of failure or incompatibility. That was a major advantage compared to other virtualisation systems (vmware for example). Now there is possibly a "double bridge" (on in the "filter driver" and one in the working and very stable kernel mainline bridge code) which means double work, possibly worse performance.
Why reinvent the wheel? Please readd direct tap support again!
