Same thing here: after upgrading VirtualBox on Windows 10 to 5.0.28,
the 'pkg upgrade' on a FreeBSD 11.0-RELEASE-p2 guest fails with
a 'Connection reset by peer' - either right away, or after downloading
a (random) couple of packages - when using NAT provided by VirtualBox.

This worked well with a previous release of VirtualBox.

Looks like the problem is not specific to FreeBSD:
