Host-only Networks tab missing from File > Preferences > Network

Postby jbhtexas » 24. Oct 2017, 16:31

Hello!
I'm running VB 5.2.0r118431 (Qt5.6.1) on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. As the subject says, the Host-only Networks tab is missing from Preferences > General. See the attached screenshot.

I was able to run "VBoxManage hostonlyif create" in a terminal, and got the output
0%...10%...20%...30%...40%...50%...60%...70%...80%...90%...100%
Interface 'vboxnet0' was successfully created


But upon opening the GUI, the Host-only Networks tab is still missing.

Any ideas?

See "Global Tools" in the menu bar (behind the window you have open).

Or just choose "File|Host Network Manager...".

Thanks!!!

The online help still says to use File > Preferences > Network to access the Host-only network settings

Perhaps you could mention that in the 5.2.0 feedback topic.
