Support Network manager for Linux host

Description

VirtualBox networking works perfect if networking is setup using system-config-network.

However, Network manager is being used in several distributions by default. Is it better for users than system-config-network as it allows to easily setup various types of connections on laptopns (home/work), such as DSL and VPN.

Please support network manager in VirtualBox.

I do not know what problem you are describing. There is no special support for any userland tool. Reading the forums post it seems like your guest network card stops working after you rebooted the guest. Which network device emulation are you using in your guest (PCNet or E1000)?

network device: Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop (NAT)

How to reproduce:

  1. delete all network interfaces using standard admin tool as root (e.g. system-config-network on fedora)
  2. Login to (gnome) desktop. Configure network using Network manager add eth0, don't allow other users to control it
  3. start VirtualBox - no networking.
