Coping files to a SharedFolders causes ADSL network lights to flash

Reported by: xwisdom Owned by:

When I try to copy some files from my guess sytem to a shared folder I noticed that the ethernet light keeps on flashing during the copy. When I check my ADSL it I noticed that the ligths are flashing also and I was not browsing the web. As soon as I stop the copy process the lights stopped flashing.

I don't believe the network should be access doing shared folder activities. Or maybe it's trying to access the internet?

The usual questions: Which host OS, which guest OS, which VirtualBox package?

My shot in the dark would be that Windows tries to resolve the vboxsvr name through DNS, causing some network traffic. The vbox shared folder code itself definitely doesn't use any network accesses.
