I have windows 7 64 as host and windows xp & Red hat linux as guest via vmware. They are working well. now i want to connect to winxp and redhat linux from host via putty.
But when I tried to connect to Windows XP the result is
connection refused. I can't communicate via putty either by entering the guest (Windows xp) IP address or name. I have installed putty in host OS (Windows 7 x64).
Is it neccessary to switch on vmware with guest os while interacting through putty?
