You can use ip address to connect.
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
'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.
