Local DB connect OK, remote ping OK. Remote DB connect KO

Currently Being Moderated
I have installed 11g XE on a VM.
I can connect to DB locally on the VM
I can ping VM from the main computer.

However, when I try to connect to the DB from the main computer, I get the following message in SQLDeveloper: "The Network Adapter could not establish the connection".
In SQLPlus, I have: ORA-12170: TNS:Connect timeout occurred

Main computer:
Windows 7 ultimate; Oracle VM VirtualBox manager


I am trying to connect to DB using VM's IP address

I think, I am missing something, but what?

Thank you
