I have netcat installed on my Fedora 9 (VM) machine, with local ip address 192.168.186.128. then i run netcat as
where 62323 is any random port.
I have enabled telnet on windows 7 (host of vm machine) to connect to the netcat server. via this command
telnet 192.168.186.128 62323
but it does not work.
for testing i have did following things.
- disabled the iptables firewalls on fedora vm machine (service iptables stop)
- tried to ping both machines from each other and they were pinging properly.
Could someone tell why i am not able to do such a basic communication? Please?
