Virtual Box refuses PUTTY connection


I had Ubuntu guest installed on VMWare. The Host OS is Windows 7. But now I want to migrate it to Virtual Box. I migrated it, but it does not allow PUTTY to connect it. It says "connection refused". On VMWare on same host and same guest, PUTTY connection is successful. But it does not allow on Virtual Box. It says connection refused. Both on VMWare and Virtual Box, the guest Ubuntu is configured using NAT networking.

Check your network card settings in your virtualbox machine settings and make sure that you set it up as bridge and not NAT

In my VMWare setting, I have NAT. So if it is working in VMWare with NAT, it should also work in Virtual Box with NAT.
If I change NAT to Bridge, I can not access internet through Guest OS(Ubuntu). With NAT I can access internet.
