Ticket #3017 (closed defect: fixed)
After upgrading to 2.1.0 (Linux 64bit) network doesn't work between Host and Guests (Host interface)
|Reported by:||Kenjiro||Owned by:|
|Version:||VirtualBox 2.1.0||Keywords:||host interface|
Until version 2.0.6 I could run my VMs (Windows XP, Slackware linux, Netbsd, Openbsd, etc) and make them connect to the Host OS over the network (I always used Host Interface). So I could use ssh, ftp, http, samba shares, etc from the Guest to Host (and vice versa).
Now that I upgraded to version 2.1.0 (linux 64bit) I just can't do it. It is like there is something blocking the network between Host and Guests. My firewall rules are the same before and after the upgrade, so that shouldn't be the problem. The Kernel is the same too.
It should be noted that my VMs can access my network (other computers) or the Internet. They just can't comunicate to the Host.
What can be done to fix this?
