Bridging eth0 needs "link" in order to work

Reported by: nandersson Owned by:

Host type: Linux


Ran into problem when trying to bridge virtual Ubuntu 9.10 with host Fedora 11 using the distributions VBox-packages. Using NIC eth0 (Thinkpad T61)

In order to get the bridge to work I had to plug in a TP-cable in the host to get "link". When cable removed the bridge stop working.

kernel: VBox 3.0.6

I don't have a problem with the issue as there is a easy workaround, but one have to be aware of it.

What are the exact symptoms, does the guest ethernet card complains it doesn't get a link (link down)? In that case, please attach the dmesg of the guest when the host NIC is not attached.
