Bridged networking question

Postby Kryol » 2. Apr 2010, 11:47

Hi all,
I use VirtualBox 3.1.6 on FreeBSD 7.2.
I installed Windows XP as a guest.
Windows guest works with NAT successfully.
Then I try to use bridged mode.
Unfortunately I can't to do this from GUI Network settings.
If I choose Bridged Adapter I see "Not selected" at Name fileld.
A following error appears:

On the Network: Adapter 1 page, no bridged network adapter is selected


But I can switch to Bridged mode trough VBoxManage

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
VBoxManage modifyvm --nic1 bridged --bridgeadapter1 age0


Then all works fine.

Where is a problem? Why I can switch to bridged with commandline and can't with GUI?
