Have you set networking to 'Bridged'?

By default VBox sets networking to 'NAT' which is fine for outgoing but not so useful for incoming. Try setting it to bridged (with VM off) and then start it and test again. If it still doesn't work, try pinging it. Does that work?

The same problem on EC2


I get the same issue on Amazon EC2 - clicking on the webmin or the web shell links don't turn up anything. Instead, Firefox says "Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at"

Any ideas?

Much appreciated - thanks!

Strange... should work OOTB

Perhaps it's something to do with rejected security certificates (they connect via https using self signed certs). Check your security settings and/or perhaps try a different web browser.

PS even though it may seem similar, this is a completely different issue to the OP.
