For testing purposes I installed virtualbox to simulate a linux(64 bit ubuntu) server.
I configured my network settings like this: Adapter 1: NAT Adapter 2: Host-only
with my etc/network/interfaces configured like this:
#loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback # primary network interface auto eth0 iface eth0 inet dhcp #the host-only network interface auto eth1 iface eth1 inet static address 192.168.56.101 netmask 255.255.255.0 network 192.168.56.0 broadcast 192.168.56.255
While my host is operating on 192.168.1.23 with standardgateway 192.168.1.1.
I am able to ping from my host to this virtualbox (192.168.1.23>192.168.56.101) and vice versa, reach the website, database running on the virtualbox etc.
But now I installed an FTP with
sudo apt-get install vsftpd
following this guide: http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/ubuntu-vsftpd-ftp-service-server/
Also configured this ftp-server (according to above link)
But whenever I try to reach this virtualbox using FTP I AM able to connect, and I get the folderlist (at least I see '257 /home/user' in filezilla) but after 10 seconds I get the error:
- Lost connection - Unable to retrieve folderlist
How to resolve this issue?
(I do not want to use the network-bridge-adapter..)
