Ticket #5805 (closed enhancement: wontfix)
Feature request: Revert to 3.0.x network controls
|Reported by:||Kurt_Aust||Owned by:|
Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
Back in the good old 3.0.x series you could simply right click on the network icon of the window of a running VM and connect or disconnect the cable, somewhat easier than the current method.
Also as I am testing install disks I always want the network disconnected on boot and the old 3.0.x series facilitated that. However the new setup keeps the last state so I have to remember to disconnect the cable each time.
I would suggest having three options for network cable status, obviously only applying to cold boots: Always start connected Always start disconnected Remember last state
