network packets from host to guest not captureable

Reported by: bjacke Owned by:

Version: VirtualBox 4.0.0 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: Linux

Description

when I capture the network traffic on the vboxnet interface I don't see any traffic that is sent from the host to the guest. This problem is happening here with Linux on the host with host-only adaptor. It is also happening with NAT networking.

For example I successfully ping the host from inside a windows guest machine:

C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\Administrator>ping 192.168.56.1

Ping wird ausgeführt für 192.168.56.1 mit 32 Bytes Daten:

Antwort von 192.168.56.1: Bytes=32 Zeit=1ms TTL=64 Antwort von 192.168.56.1: Bytes=32 Zeit<1ms TTL=64 Antwort von 192.168.56.1: Bytes=32 Zeit<1ms TTL=64 Antwort von 192.168.56.1: Bytes=32 Zeit<1ms TTL=64

Ping-Statistik für 192.168.56.1:

Pakete: Gesendet = 4, Empfangen = 4, Verloren = 0 (0% Verlust),

Ca. Zeitangaben in Millisek.:

Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 1ms, Mittelwert = 0ms

On the host I only see the ICMP requests not the replies:

# tcpdump -i any icmp 12:07:22.996287 IP 192.168.56.3 > 192.168.56.1: ICMP echo request, id 512, seq 256, length 40 12:07:23.983103 IP 192.168.56.3 > 192.168.56.1: ICMP echo request, id 512, seq 512, length 40 12:07:24.982830 IP 192.168.56.3 > 192.168.56.1: ICMP echo request, id 512, seq 768, length 40 12:07:25.983006 IP 192.168.56.3 > 192.168.56.1: ICMP echo request, id 512, seq 1024, length 40

This bug is making Virtualbox unusable for network debugging purposes.

With NAT networking that does not make sense as the host cannot see the network packets of a NAT guest anyway. For host-networking see #8076.
