Discussions related to using VirtualBox on Linux hosts.
I can't seem to make IPv6 work on a linux (ubuntu 8.10) host with host interface networking. The same works fine on a windows vista host.
As soon as I modprobe ipv6 I get : eth0: duplicate address detected!
Something like rdisc6 eth0 gives me the following :
Soliciting ff02::2 (ff02::2) on eth0...
Sending ICMPv6 packet: cannot assign requested address
The installed virtualbox version is the 2.1.0-41146_Ubuntu_intrepid package from the virtualbox.org apt repository.

This isn't a terribly helpful reply, sorry, I haven't had time to research it myself yet since upgrading to 2.1.0 but I am also experiencing a similar problem. Ubuntu 8.10 64-bit host with a 32-bit WS2003 guest or 32-bit XP guest yields the same type of error for me in the guest.

Did you check the Bugtracker
? This defect is already fixed in the SVN, so 2.1.2 has it fixed. See http://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/3056
for more info.
Therefor, locked. Good luck. If you really need IPv6, either use a tunnel like Teredo (miredo on linux), or switch back to 2.0.6. Or just wait a few days, as 2.1.2 should be done pretty soon.
