I'm using VirtualBox on Windows 7 to run Fedora 7. I seem to have my SSH on, as
/sbin/service sshd status tells me. When I do an
/sbin/ifconfig, I get this:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 08:00:27:CF:5A:0B inet addr:10.0.2.15 Bcast:10.0.2.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
I do an
ssh 10.0.2.15 from inside Fedora, and connect back to the guest machine.
When I do an
ipconfig on my Windows machine, I get this information:
Ethernet adapter VirtualBox Host-Only Network: Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : fe80::b42c:a852:a0e8:1636%19 IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.56.1 Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
When I now use PuTTY, to connect to 192.168.56.1, it says connection refused. Connection to 10.0.2.15 times out.
SSH service is running. I have disabled SELinux. Also, I have allowed ssh as a trusted service in system-configure-securitylevel. I have tried to switch the firewall completely, but it turns back on automatically.
