I was still able to access EM from local pc with this IP.
Do you use any proxy in browser?
On command line of your system, use "nslookup" to figure out whether your system is able to discover the IP (192.168.0.100). Also use "telnet" to make sure that admin server port is reachable from your machine.
I have tried all the options (NAT with port forwarding, Bridged Network, Host-only Network) to connect to the server running on soa pre-built VM, but still no use. Is there something I'm missing?
when I do nslookup:
*** dir-600 can't find 192.168.56.101: Non-existent domain
Even the telnet is not working.
I guess the connection is routed through my wireless router connected to my system. Please help.
I believe you need host and vm ip addresses in the same subnet to be able to connect... If your net mask is 255.255.255.0 you need all the addresses to be like 192.168.0.x...
An address 192.168.56.101 won't be on the same subnet as 192.168.0.1...
