installed Oracle Developer Day.ova but how to connect using putty

Hi friends,

 

i have installed oracle db using Oracle Developer Day.ova for practicing on my lappie.

I want to connect to that DB which is inside oracle vm virtual box manager using PUTTY ( which is on my desktop). I dont want to use the in-built workspace or Terminal(whatever is its name).

 

Can you guys please suggest what should i do so that i can login to the DB using the PUTTY only (i love it )? i am not able to login to the host "localhost" using the putty.

 

Few years back when i had installed vmware(linux installed in it and db installed on linux) i could connect through putty.

 

I am using below entry in the hosts file.

 

 

 

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
    127.0.0.1       localhost
#    ::1             localhost

    Hi,

    You can use ip address to connect.

    ifconfig -a

    'localhost' and its ip address of 127.0.0.1 are non-routeable.  Any request to send a network message to localhost will never leave the machine from which the request originates.  And for all intents and purposes, your virtual machine is a different machine.
