I am running CentOS 6.2 with SSH enabled on Windows 7 and I cannot access CentOS via my host.

I have 2 adapters runnings, 1) Host-Only and 2) NAT.

My problem is very similar to this one and I have configured both adapters, but I am still unable to access the CentOS machine.

We successfully pinged the machine from host.

Any ideas?

You said you can ping the guest by IP. How else do you want to communicate with the guest? –  iglvzx Feb 14 '12 at 17:43
    
Did you try disabling SElinux or any firewall ? –  Ouki Feb 14 '12 at 17:53
    
@iglvzx I wish to communicate to the guest via SSH or through some means in which I can talk to a MySQL database, run backups etc. –  AlxVallejo Feb 14 '12 at 18:00
    
@Ouki I've tried allowing the IP on my firewall but I have not yet tried disabling SElinux (if it is enabled). I will report back. –  AlxVallejo Feb 14 '12 at 18:05

@Ouki, I figured it out. Port 80 was being blocked on the CentOS firewall. Thanks for your suggestions! –  AlxVallejo Feb 14 '12 at 18:21
