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

    Kunwar

      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

            1. # localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself. 
            2.     127.0.0.1       localhost 
            3. #    ::1             localhost 

             

             

            '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.
