Bridged Networking Feature Does Not Work in Guest VMs Hosted within VirtualBox 3.2 on Solaris 10 (Doc ID 1307407.1)

Last updated on APRIL 10, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle VM VirtualBox - Version 3.2 to 4.3 [Release 3.0 to 4.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Users of VirtualBox on Solaris 10 hosts may report that networking does not work as expected within any guest VM that is configured with a bridged network interface.

Simply updating the configuration of the guest VM to use another network modality--such as Network Address Translation, or NAT--will work as expected.
