Ticket #5526 (new defect)
Sun Ethernet driver breaking Cannon Network printing
|Reported by:||SteveLee||Owned by:|
This problem is not with running a guest or VM but with the Sun network drivers that get installed with VirtualBox.
During installation I said yes to the 3/4 options to install devices and then created a Guest (for a ChromeOS vmdk). I played with this then exited. When I tried to print to my Cannon MX850 networked printer (from the host as usual) the files just got queued up. So I went into Device driver and un-installed the VirtualBox Sun Ethernet driver and printing was restored.
It may be useful to know that the Cisco VPN client causes similar problems when connected. Perhaps some issue specific to Canon IJ networking?
