I have followed a tutorial from this website http://jtreminio.com/2012/07/setting-up-a-debian-vm-step-by-step/. I am up to the point in the tutorial where it says to login via SSH. I have installed Putty and logging in under debian-vm as the host name and I have also used 192.168.56.101 as a IP address. I get a connection timed out error every time I try to login.
I have read other posts and suggestions pop up that it may be due to firewall issues or network related issues. Ultimately I am not well versed in networking so I really wouldn't know. Can someone suggest where to start to fix this issue or help me with any ideas they may have. I am using Oracle Virtual box with Debian 64 bit on Windows 7. I have OpenSSH installed on Debian, using NAT for adaptor 1 and Host only adaptor on 2. I have written to the files in Debian and I have written the IP address and host name into the hosts file on Windows 7 as instructed.
