Bridged network guest stops to respond after a while

Postby brunosimioni » 26. Oct 2009, 13:29

Hi all,

That's my scenario:

Host
Sun VirtualBox 3.0.8 PUEL
Microsoft Windows 2003 Server R2 SP2.
(A) Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet Adapter (Internal network).
(B) Intel(R) Pro/1000 PT Server Ethernet Adapter (External network).

Guest
VirtualBox Guest Addition 3.0.8 PUEL
Linux Slackware 12.2, with SMP (2 cores).
Shared Folders through vbox file system.
2 Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop connected in (A) and (B), in bridged network mode. One of them have an external IP, and the another one, internal IP.

Problem
Guest network adapter freezes (and get unreacheable) sometimes, preventing access via network from host, or outside the host, when running a in bridged network connection mode. However, from guest and inside it, I have external network acess, normally. It's very strange!

Logs
That's maybe related to the end of the log.

Yep, I'm seeing the same thing with 3.0.10 with an OSX 10.6.1 host and an OpenSuSE 11.1 guest.

lukemacnell, on 3.0.8, to get guest network back, I needed to close guest machine, than repair network interfaces (at Windows host), and then, restart guests machines.

On 3.0.10 (at Windows host), when It happens, only repairing network interfaces (without stopping them) solves temporarily that problem.

Needing help!

After a while without any Vbox developer response, I decided to ticket that error as a bug.

That's the bug address:

Hope someone help with this problem.
