I have Ubuntu Server 18 installed on a virtualbox instance. I want to be able to SSH into it from the desktop computer that it's currently installed on and running on as well as from my laptop. Would like to be able to remote into it from work on my laptop, as i plan to use the virtual machine as a web server to run my blog.
As of now, when i run ip addr in my Ubuntu Server VM, it's giving me a 192.168.0.x ip address.
I open up a command prompt window in Windows and type: ssh 192.168.0.x
Output is: email@example.com's password:
I have no idea why that is the output. Why would my windows machine's local username be there..the virtual machine is an entirely separate IP when using Bridged Network Adapter in the VM options isn't it? So that's pretty strange.
So, i try typing in the password that i've set for root in the Ubuntu Server VM and the output is:
Permission denied, please try again.
This is my first time using SSH for this purpose, can anyone clarify what i am doing wrong here? Thanks.
