vboxnet0 and multicast problem

Reported by: OxOOCOFFEE Owned by:
Component: network Version: VirtualBox 4.1.6
Keywords: multicast vboxnet0 Cc:
Guest type: Windows Host type: Mac OS X


I am running VBox 4.1.6 on MacOS 10.7.2. I have Windows 7 x32 setup as guest. My guest has two networks configured: NAT and vboxnet0 (host only). While I am developing my software I am trying to run couple services on host binding to vboxnet0 communicating multicast. The problem is I listen in guest on host only interface while other service is sending multicast in host everything works fine. But if I try to send and receive all on host on vboxnet0 it does not work.

Just installed 4.1.8 and still same problem. I have (windump -s 0 -w out.pcap port 9900) and trying to send multicast packet and listen to it on (vboxnet0) I do not receive it in my program. But windump can trap this packet attached as out.pcap

Looks like it is working. It turned out to be my code. After fixing my code I tried on 4.1.6 and it was not working. So problem was was on both sides but now it is working. I did not see anything in release notes related to this problem being fixed. Please close it now
