Bridged networking does not work in emulators/virtualbox-ose-kmod using -latest of Q3 pkg branches on 11.1-RELEASE-p1 after upgrade from 11.0-RELEASE
- uninstall virtualbox-ose-kmod
- build port from scratch on 11.1
This indicates a KBI change between 11.0 and 11.1
To restore briding functionality to this port, would it be possible to provide a binary build of this port that was built on 11.1 for both -latest and q3?
It isn't just upgrades; my system is a completely fresh install of 11.1-RELEASE (which I have upgraded to -p4) and bridged networking does not work for me either. No errors appear when loading the modules or running the VM, but no packets are passed through to it.
Unlike Kamil, manually building the module from source does not make packets route for me. I still have 0 packets being sent to the VM even after downloading the ports tree, kernel source, and a partridge in a pear tree as required to build the module.
Compilation of the module was successful, and I had deleted the pkg with the module manually before I built it.
This is with virtualbox-ose 5.2.0, installed via pkg, and the module built from the ports tree updated today:

Well, I can eat some crow here after continued troubleshooting - the vboxnet /dev handle has improper permissions by default, as is noted in the Handbook. I had changed those, but forgot to log out and back in.
That said -- if I remove the modules I built and install the ones from pkg, the config breaks. If I reinstall the ones I built manually, it works.
I have the same issue and all my VMs are not working anymore. (FreeBSD 11.1 + Virtualbox 5.2)
The workaround provided by Kamil is not working in my case.
Please try to fix it.

I played a bit more with that, and now is working.
- I removed the previous installed virtualbox-ose-5.1.28_2 and virtualbox-ose-kmod-5.1.28 but I still kept phpvirtualbox-5.1.1_1 (all three packages were installed using "pkg")
- I reinstalled from ports virtualbox-ose-5.2.0_1 and virtualbox-ose-kmod-5.2.0_1
- I changed the permissions for "vboxnectl" as mentioned in handbook: https://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/virtualization-host-virtualbox.html
and now it works.
phpvirtualbox is still giving a warning that is not compatible with virtualbox 5.2 but I don't see any problem right now.
Sorry if I'm a little impatient but 11.0 is now officially EoL'ed, yet this problem still persists with the pkg installed virtualbox-ose-kmod on an 11.1-RELEASE system?

as mentioned in comment #3 I was running 11.1. More exactly, is: 11.1-RELEASE-p4

Yes, I too built it from ports on one of my boxes which then worked, but the issue is specifically with the pkg version. I could be wrong but believe the pkg version simply needs to be re-compiled on an 11.1 system as Kamil originally requested so those of us wanting to only use pkg can do so.
I recognize one is stuck with the default config options when using a binary pkg instead of the port, but this does not appear to be the situation here... it's been some time since I first used the port to install it but I don't recall deviating from any default config options.
I have the same problem; 'just commenting so y'all will know others are seeing this. Kamil, thanks for filing the bug!
(I guess this can be closed: it is working correctly in recent releases.)

+1 to closure …

… re: <https://www.freshports.org/emulators/virtualbox-ose-kmod/#history>, <https://reviews.freebsd.org/D29319> fixed a bridge-related issue, so I assume that bridged networking does now work with emulators/virtualbox-ose-kmod 6.1.18.
Kamil, please: if you agree that it's fixed, for a supported release of FreeBSD, would you like to close this bug?
