Ticket #6051 (closed defect: obsolete)
Scanning of network is really slow with activated host-only network
|Reported by:||Klonk||Owned by:|
Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
similar to Bug 4103:
- WinXpSp3 prof. Host
- Virtualbox 3.1.2
This problem persists since very long time... (I think since version 2.x, maybe earlier)
Preparation: Clean install of Virtualbox 3.1.2. All options (also host-only interface) are installed.
Problem: When scanning the network through network environment takes very long time. What I mean: I'm searching for a printer or connectable network drive within the network. This scanning process lasts up to 30secs. Normally (before install of virtualbox) the same process takes mayb 1-2secs. The scanning does work though but takes ages.
Additional problem that occurs: Accessing a computer within the same domain who made a folder available for public is not possible. I'm always asked for user and password.
Partial Workaround: Deactivating Host-only interface helps. Scanning speed is as before. I'm still asked for username and password.
What I tried: I checked the order of network interfaces (host-only is last one in list).
