SSH/Virtualbox Network Installation
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 16, 2012
Okay so this is going to sound crazy, because it is. I have an old Pentium 4 Dell PC and a MacBook Pro with Snow Leopard. What I'm trying to do is run the Ubuntu 10.04 ISO in Virtualbox and then SSH into the PC running Lucid Puppy in RAM (live cd). I've got as far as setting up the PC's hard drive with an Ext3 and swap partition, successfully configured SSH on both computers, and even got Ubuntu running just fine in Virtualbox.
Ubuntu has mounted the target hard drive and it appears as a folder on the desktop. I can access Puppy's root directory including the mounted target hard drive. However, as soon as I start the Ubuntu installer, the folder disappears and I am only given the option for a VBOX installation. I know I'm missing something simple here I can feel it.
Any help would be great!
SSH into Ubuntu server Virtualbox
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 28, 2012
I have been trying things for ages, and still haven't found a solution for this. I have installed the new ubuntu server in virtualbox within an ubuntu desktop host. I checked the SSH checkbox on install, then ran ifconfig. But there is no ip to use there by default.
Within virtualbox I have setup the second network adapter to host-only, but now am at a loss as to what to try.
Any suggestions would be most appreciated, as this is a little frustrating as to what I am doing wrong.
Thanks for any advice you can give,
Issue trying to SSH into virtualbox host
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 17, 2011
I've got Ubuntu 11.04 installed as host and virtualbox OSE 4.04 guest which I am using to test a LAMP server. I have got a successful Apache test page when using the following link
I also got a successful PHP test with the following link:
and testing MySQl server using phpMyAdmin
However when I try to ssh into Virtual box guest, I get the following error:
Permission denied, please try again.
I'm still a noob to networking so apologies in advances for information that is not relevant. I've been working on this for a couple of days and getting no where hence reason why I'm posting. After googling I have done various things but the one I remember doing are as follows:
* Installed openssh in both host and guest
* Added following information to Virtualbox:
Key: VBoxInternal/Devices/pcnet/0/LUN#0/Config/Apache/GuestPort, Value: 80
HOW TO: Setup an ssh server in Virtualbox
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 25, 2011
It took me awhile to do this cause I'm kind of a noob, so I thought I'd post this in case anyone else is interested in attempting this.
Basically I wanted to setup an ssh server on my computer that I, along with some other people I know, could access from outside my home network. I didn't want to give others access to my computer (even if that access was limited), so I wanted to setup the server within a Virtualbox virtual machine.
STEP 1: Create the virtual machine
Create a vm with the distro of your choice. I won't explain how to do that here since there are TONS of guides online about how to do this. Once the vm has been created, be sure to install an ssh server:
sudo apt-get install openssh-server
STEP 2: Configure the host to send info to the vm
I found an article that explains why you have to do this and how to do it:
I can summarize the article by saying that the vm is hidden from other network computers by the host compute
SSH into Guest OS if Virtualbox
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 10, 2012
I have Ubuntu 12.04 running Oracle's VirtualBox 4.1.12. The guest OS is Minix3. openSSH has been installed on minix3, but I am having a hard time trying to ssh into Minix's file system. I want to be able to use Eclipse's remote system explorer and therefore need to figure out this communication issue. I appreciate any help!
VirtualBox ssh from guest to host
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 31, 2012
I can't ssh from my guest server to the host in VirtualBox 4.1.2. I can successfully ssh in with no issues. There are 2 network adapters enabled, using NAT and Host-only. I have tried sshing to the various addresses that come up in ifconfig. The host is Ubuntu 11.10 and the guest is Ubuntu 11.10 server.
If I ssh to the actual ip address of my host machine it just hangs. I do have openssh-server installed so it's not that. If I try one of the local addresses I get a connection refused error.
I'm not sure what else to do and there is very little information on google that deals with going from guest to host. Any help is most appreciated.
ssh tunnel to Virtualbox windows remote desktop through ubuntu host
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 9, 2011
Hi guys, im trying to implement a new project which requires to have access to a remote desktop on windows.
But the idea is to not have this windows box directly connected to the web.
So one thought was this:
Have Ubuntu (probably 10.04, desktop?) as a host for VirtualBox. And windows installed on VB (guest).
And the path would be, access ubuntu through SSH tunnel, and access the remote desktop service of the virtual windows.
First of all, is this possible?
if it is, some idea where to start? Im not looking for a complete tutorial or howto, but an indication where to start searching to accomplish this..
Thanks in advance guys

Tip: Use SSH and VirtualBox together to make uses out of old laptops
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 8, 2011
Here is a little tip I discovered a few days ago, and I wrote as small guide:
I won't repeat it here so you can just read the article on my site
It works very well for using old hardware. I have also tested this out with a live CD, and so even if you have a junk computer with no hard drive you have still use it. I'm sure there are programs that specifically do this, but since setting this all up takes about 5 minutes, I think that alone gives it an advantage.
Let me know if it helped any!
