Ticket #2970 (closed defect: fixed)
winxp limited guest networking on ubuntu 8.04 amd64

When running VB 2.1.0 on my Ubuntu 8.04 LTS AMD64 host machine, networking is crippled for Windows XP SP3 32bit. Setting the MTU for the virtual network interface to 1450 in the windows registry seems to resolve the issue.
- able to ping (packets up to 1468 bytes)
- dns lookups go though fine.
- telnet sessions work fine as well.
- IE http traffic fails.
- CIFS traffic can discover shares, but not browse them.
Installing or uninstalling Guest Additions doesn't affect the situation.
