vlan interface support in os x version

Reported by: thirdorderharmonic Owned by:
Component: network Version: VirtualBox 2.1.4
Keywords: vlan network Cc:
Guest type: Windows Host type: Mac OS X


In os x leopard (10.5) it is possible to add vlan interfaces as follows:

-Click on system preferences----->network -Click on the "cog" icon at the botom of the interfaces list and select "manage virtual interfaces. -Add additional tagged interface as per needed ;)

Once created, these interfaces show up to OS X as if they were additional physical interfaces, but do not show up as usable host interfaces in virtualbox. If it could be possible to use these interfaces in virtualbox it would make an enormous different to my ability to use virtualbox on an OS X host as a server virtualization solution in my production environment. Without it I am limited to only being able to have virtual machines on as many subnets as I have physical NICs.

From reading through other posts etc, it seems as if this functionality may already be present in the windows version?

Thanks for all you hard work! virtualbox is fantastic!
