I'm running ssh server on
Slackware 14.2 on
Windows host. I've set up
NAT networking with port forwarding with
4191 port configured as a host port.
I've installed and configured
VBoxVmService to automate the virtual machine startup/stop process. The problem is that although the service is successfully and automatically started on Windows startup (what i can verify with the
Task Manager) the virtual machine networking seems not to work properly - there is no
4191 port open (i've checked with
CurrPorts app). What's curious when i stop and start the service again using
VmServiceControl tool the networking work as expected - the port
4191 is open and i can connect to vm ssh server.
I'm wondering why the vm networking doesn't work on system startup without the need to manually restart the
