Ticket #4765 (closed defect: fixed)

browsing https web pages is extremely slow on a windows guest in a Ubuntu host

Reported by: FangQ Owned by:
Priority: major Component: network/NAT
Version: VirtualBox 3.0.4 Keywords: https
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Linux

Description

I installed a windows xp guest OS in a Ubuntu 9.04 host. Everything else was fast and smooth, except that when I browse a secure web server with  https:// URLs. The virtualbox window will freeze for a few seconds, the host computer CPU jumps up to 100% (with 1 CPU). Browsing any non-ssl http links are very smooth, even pages with many data.

This happens for firefox 3.5 and safari.0.2, but less severer on IE. My virtualbox version is 3.0.4.

as an example, you may browse  https://orbit.nmr.mgh.harvard.edu/ . I checked the log file, nothing special.

  • Component changed from network to network/NAT

Your guest uses NAT. Do you experience the same problem with the current release (VBox 3.1.2)?

Does it still happens with 3.1.4 beta?
