How can I connect to Linux (which is in a VM) from the host PC using putty? I can ping the 192.168.1.108 from my host PC. And there is sshd process running on Linux. I choose the SSH to connect, but gives error.
I am new to linux, it was nice to work with linux on virtual machine, but suddenly yesterday when I try to connect using putty from my windowsxp machine its showing network connection error. I dont know what happened. In linux machine ifconfig shows only 127.0.0.1, could not trace problem, guide me to trace the problem.
Previously it used to give 192.168.1.2/192.168.1.3 it used to vary every boot. FTP also stopped working. I am clueless. My system setup: Del inspiron 1525: RAM 3G HDD 160G Linux RHEL3 on VMWare
I have VMWare on a notebook, guest Windows running on Linux host. The network in that virtual machine is configured as NAT. I want to share/transfer files from Linux (host) to Windows (guest). So I leave sshd always running on the notebook, I go into Windows and run an SSH/SFTP program. My Wifi router has address 192.168.1.1, my desktop has address 192.168.1.2 and my notebook has address 192.168.1.3. On the notebook, that SSH/SFTP program connects to 192.168.1.3 (i.e. the notebook itself) and everything works fine. But it's a notebook, and when I leave home with it, 192.168.1.3 is no longer accessible. How can I let the guest OS connect to the host OS when I'm away from my Wifi network?
I have been using VMware Player for some time to host Fedora VMware images on Windows XP. I have been using Fedora 11 and 12 (both 32 and 64 bit) and recently started to use Fedora 13.
I use as a base the images provided by thoughtpolice. http://www.thoughtpolice.co.uk/
I usually install VMware tools and also keep the images updated (yum update) which sometimes changes the kernel.
I have recently had problems with the snapshots not having a network when I restore them. So far I don't have the problem with Fedora 11 and do have it with Fedora 12 (but used not to). I do have it with Fedora 13.
In each case the problem goes away when I uninstall the VMware tools and comes back when I install them again.
One of the symptoms is that SElinux complains about not being able to do something with /var/run/vmware-active-nics.
It looks to me that something is incorrect in the actions being taken when the snapshot is being restored. It does not happen every time and sometimes the network restores itself.
The network can be restored by rebooting the image.
Centos 5 was set up for me on my server with VMware and XP SP3 as a guest. I have little to no knowledge of centos (or anything Linux) so i tend to leave well alone but i am trying to get a USB printer to work from my networked pcs through XP - Through VMware - Through Centos5 to the USB port on the back of my server. I am reasonably OK with XP but am not a techie so will probably need to be walked through this.
I can see the printer appearing on Centos' equivalent to device manager and when i print everything seems ok with the XP print queue clearing after a few seconds but nothing prints. At a guess i need some sort of software bridge- (is this SAMBA?).
I have RHEL 5 installed on VMware 6.0 and the host OS is Windows 7. My Host is connected to internet using a wireless connection and works on shared IP. Earlier when I had Windows vista as host I have managed to get the internet connection on the RHEL but do not remember how I managed it. Now I need help in setting the internet connection on RHEL. I have set up a NAT connection. But of no use.
I am running VMware workstation on a Linux host and WinXP guest using NAT. I have shared a folder on WinXP, and I am able to mount it on the linux host with: mount -t smbfs -o username=Administrator,password=mypasswd //192.168.100.129/Shared /mnt/tmp This works fine. However, I want to mount the same folder from a different linux machine (not the host).
I added port forwarding in /etc/vmware/vmnet8/nat/nat.conf: [incomingtcp] #445 = 192.168.100.129:445
If I run: mount -t smbfs -o username=Administrator,password=mypasswd //external_ip_number/Shared /mnt/tmp
I am getting: mount error 112 = Host is down Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)
It doesn't work even if I try the above command from the linux host itself. It only works if I use the internal IP number. I suspect vmware is not forwarding port 445 but I am not sure how to verify it. I am not running smbd on the linux host, in case that make any difference. I didn't think that was required because the server is really on the WinXP and the linux is just a client.
Right now I have a machine set up running Fedora. I have configured inittab to accept Console Logins, but I am having problems getting my netbook running PuTTY to connect. How would I go about finding the Host Name and Port to connect to?
I can no longer drag files from my ubuntu host into my XP guest. I have vmware tools installed in XP and up until recently I could simply drag whatever I wanted back and forth between the systems. When I try to drag a file across into XP the cursor has the plus sign like it would normally to drop a file in, but now it also makes a selection box on the XP desktop. Same problem in Workstation and Player. I haven't posted on the vmware forums yet, I figured someone here probably has had the same problem. I don't think it was a kernel update. I restarted ubuntu with 22.214.171.124 which was fully functional before, still with the same problem.
Not sure if this post belongs here, but here it is.
Host: Win server 2003 Guest: Ubuntu server
Host: IS able to ping guest. Firewall is OFF. NOT able to access guest (which is a web-server) at browser. Guest: NOT able to ping host. Running a web server, you can check the website: (pegajosa.com) is running under that virtual Linux server.
Problem: guest needs to access host's sql database and/or any resources.
how to connect OS "ubuntu 9:10" as the host, with Qemu as a guest.?I can not connect from the host to geust, how to connect??I use Samba to connect the host to the guest.I was able to ping from guest to host, but from host to guest can not ping .. why?
I have installed VMWare on XP(host) and installed Ubuntu 10.10 Guest on VMWare. I need to simulate remote server on my Ubuntu Guest and connect from XP to Ubuntu guest using WinScp or PUTTY. How do I do it? On my VMWare right now I have networking set as NAT.
I am using windows 7 OS. I want to make client server setup & trying to connect putty with Vmware from windows 7. I had installed redhat linux 5in Vmware & set the ipaddress as well but I am not able to connect vmware through this ip address.Do I need to set some configuration in ssh as well?
I have 4 VMs on a Linux host, call them A, B, C, D running on Z. I really don't care when A and B come up, but I would like to make sure that D comes up before C.I believe that in VMWare 2.x it's possible to change the boot order. Is this possible in 1.x as well? Is this done in /etc/vmware/vm-list? I see that there are a number of VMs listed there, including some that have long since been deleted.
i have installed virtualbox on centos , and installed xp as a guest os. my LAN is on 10.200.2.x/24 network inorder to avoid conflict i have given centos ip as 10.200.2.191/24 and a virtual ip 192.168.56.4/24 my gateway is 10.200.2.1 i am able to ping from my guest os to host os the ip address but not the gateway inorder for internet connectivity
I have annoying problem. My setup is the following: debian Linux, 64 bits, VMWare workstation 7 host, with Windows XP running as guest. From Firefox, or Internet Explorer, I am unable to access few sites, for example nvidia.com, osdir. Basically get connection timed out, on the other hand ping works to those sites. Moreover, Slashdot loads very very slow and sometimes gets horrible text-only version.
everything works fine on Linux host
I suspect it has something to do with routing on Linux, I recall having similar problem long time ago, which was fixed by setting something in /proc.
I tried setting MTU and TCP window size on Windows lower, but did not help
I have Linux installed on my harddrive, sometimes I run it as the host operating system and sometimes run it as a guest in Windows using VirtualBox. It's a nice ability, I think.
I don't think it's possible with Windows though. Is it because your average distribution includes drivers for everything known to man? Are devices/drivers configured statically in Windows so when somethings changed it breaks?
I was doing some thing on networking on virtual machine (rhel 3 as guest os) and winxp as host .. now when i started my guest os (linux) the login page letters (like username and password) size became very large so that i could not see them (crossed the screen) .
With VirtualBox you can share a directory on the host machine with the guest machine. Can you share a directory on the guest machine with the host machine? In my setup the host is Windows 7 and the guest is Ubuntu. Can I have a directory on the Ubuntu file system accesible from Windows?
I have a Ubuntu hosting a Windows XP box (using VirtualBox). The Windows XP box is connected to work using Check Point VPN-1. Essentially this enables me to go to my Windows box and do something like ping comp-at-work and it just works.
I would like to access the VPN resources from the Linux host though. The Windows guest is only there because the VPN client isn't working in Linux. If I could somehow ssh from the Linux host right into my computer at work (using remote desktop would also be great), that would save me a lot of round trips between my Linux host and the Windows guest.
I have RHEL running in Virtual Box and my native OS is Win 7. From a purely educational standpoint, I want to be able to access RHEL from Win 7 over SSH. I download putty but don;t know how to make it do what I want. Ideally, I would like to use the linux command prompt at a minimum and preferably access the GUI apps also. IS this possible? I am just trying to explore and expand my linux knowledge.
I've been allowed to work on the server of a forum. I was given the username and password, and with them logged in successfully on the server using PuTTY, but now I'm not sure what command I use to do anything to the users on the forum For example how would I change someone's username or password, etc.
I'm looking for virtual machine software that supports dual monitors on a Linux guest with a Windows 7 host.VirtualBox supports dual monitors only for Windows guests. VMware Player was extremely slow, so I gave up. I'm not sure it supports dual monitors, anyway. Can anyone recommend a product for what I want to do?
I would like to share a folder from a Linux Guest with a Windows host (with read and write access if possible) in VirtualBox. I read in these two links: here and here that it's possible to do this using Samba, but I am a little bit lost and need more information on how to proceed.
So far, I managed to set up two network adapters (one NAT and one host-only) and to install Samba on the Linux guest, but I have the following questions now: What do I need to type in samba.conf to share a folder from the Linux guest? (the tutorial provided in one of the links above only explains how to share home directories) Are there any Samba commands that I need to run on the guest to enable sharing? How do I make sure that these folders are only available to the host OS and not on the Internet? Once the Linux guest is setup, how do I access each of the individual shared folders from the Windows host? I read that I need to mount a drive on Windows to do this, but do I use Samba logins, or Linux logins, also do I use localhost? or do I need to set up an IP for this?
