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
