Description

My Debian guest on my Windows XP host fails to start up If I try to use a nat network that has an octet equal to 255.

For instance, if I execute:

VBoxManage.exe modifyvm candiru --natnet1 "10.0.255/24"

The below error displays when I try to start the candiru vm:

Failed to start the virtual machine candiru. NAT#0: Configuration error: network '10.0.255/24' describes not a valid IPv4 network (VERR_INVALID_PARAMETER). Failed to attach the network LUN (VERR_INVALID_PARAMETER). Unknown error creating VM (VERR_INVALID_PARAMETER) Details Result Code: E_FAIL (0x80004005) Component: Console Interface: IConsole {6375231a-c17c-464b-92cb- ae9e12Bd71c3}

Additional failed networks:

10.1.255.0/24 10.2.255.0/24 10.255.0.0/24 172.16.255.0/24 192.168.255.0/24

Networks successfully used as arguments to natnet:

10.0.254.0/24 10.1.254.0/24 10.2.254.0/24 10.254.0.0/24 172.16.254.0/24 192.168.254.0/24
