How do I set up gigabit link between host and guest? Looks like I'm only connected at 100Mbps. I checked the priority, and colinux-net-daemon.exe is set to high by default. I wanted to increase the MTU but seems to be limited to 1500, maybe I can hack it in the registry? I'm not sure if this will provide any performance improvements but just trying things out.

    If what you are trying to achieve is make host colinux network communication faster. I think getting GE is not the direction. Since to the colinux netdev driver FE or GE the same thing. We should look into how the data being copied between host and colinux. For example, I am sure the cofb drive use different way to copy data to host that suppose to be faster (no test result to prove).

    Yes, that is exactly what I am trying to do. Seems like something akin to cofb would work better instead of emulating a network link. Since that does not exist at the moment, I'm looking for other solutions.
