Ticket #7268 (new defect)
Host-only interface works OK in Linux guests but extremely slow in Windows guest
|Reported by:||ante||Owned by:|
I have Ubuntu 9.04 2.6.28-19-server as host and multiple guests with host-only networking with virtio drivers.
1 Windows XP guest 2 Ubuntu 10.04 guests
On host machine transfers between Linux guests are around 20 MB/s.
data2.cab 100% 377MB 25.1MB/s 00:15
Problem is transfers from Windows guest to Linux guests, speeds are only about 4 MB/s using WinSCP. Transfers over LAN using IP tables routing have even bigger problem for Windows guest, speed is around 150-160KB/s while Linux guests have normal internet speeds of about 5MB/s.
