SSHing to Linux VM from Windows


I have Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon on my laptop. I can ssh into that from Windows using PuTTy. I just installed VirtualBox and set up Ubuntu Server on it. Now I'm trying to SSH from Windows into the VM Ubuntu Server but just can't get it. Spent hours looking thru the 'Net. I have started the SSH Service, turned off firewall.

Is the VM on the same subnet as the Windows box?

By default, VirtualBox gives a new VM a NAT connection, which isolates it from your subnet. You can change by stopping the VM and, in the Settings-->Network, selecting a bridged adapter. Under the "Advanced" item, you will generally see several network adapters. Generally, the VB default will work, but, if it doesn't, you may need to cycle through choices to find the one that works.

Yes, you would need to set the interface on Ubuntu VM into bridge-networking then let it acquire IP via DHCP (or manually-assigned, that's up to you). Once you turn the firewall off on the VM, make sure that sshd actually starts with no issue.

However, I prefer dedicating a separate interface/network specific for ssh access. If you are on Linux host, it is called Host-only adapter/vboxnet0. Not sure how it is called if on Windows host.
