Hi All,

I am trying to setup iSCSI enviornment in Virtualbox. I have 3 virtual machines and I am using first virtual machine as ISCSI Target.On other two virtual machines I want to setup initiator but I am getting error in my discovery process(See below).Please share if have done similar setup or have any suggestions.Thanks in advance.

    I suggest to disable the firewall for the purpose of troubleshooting and see if you can connect:

    <pre>
    service iptables stop
    </pre>

    Also make sure you have connected your Virtual Network adapter as "Bridged" and not as "NAT" or "host only", which restricts your ability to connect to the outside or back to the inside of your machine.
