Cannot ssh to the VM from Windows host
Created by: MMI
The VM appears to create the host only interface with an IP of 192.168.56.101. However, ssh simply hangs and there's no evidence that VirtualBox set up an interface/route/whatever on the Windows side on that network.
Windows ipconfig tells me:
`Ethernet adapter VirtualBox Host-Only Network:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : Autoconfiguration IPv4 Address. . : 169.254.156.233 Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.0.0 Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :`
The problem here is that I had VirtualBox misconfigured... to fix, in the virtualbox manager GUI:
File->Host Network Manager...
Then change the properties for the VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter to "Configure Adapter Automatically"
All good for me after that
