I have two VirtualBox virtual machines: one with SuSE Enterprise 10 and one with Red Hat Enterprise 5. I want to connect through SSH from RedHat to SuSE.
Both are configured to use a bridged adapter with
vnic0 as name and “Allow All” for “Promiscuous Mode”. SuSE has IP 10.211.55.5 and Red Hat has IP 10.211.55.6. I can connect through SSH from SuSE to Red Hat but not vice-versa. What could be the problem?
If I ping from Red Hat to SuSE and vice versa, everything is in order and the transmitted packets are received. If I traceroute from SuSE to Red Hat I get
1 10.211.55.6 (10.211.55.6)(H!) 0.509 ms (H!) 14.974 ms (H!) 0.877 ms
which seems in order, but when I traceroute from RedHat to SuSE I get
traceroute to 10.211.55.5 (10.211.55.5), 30 hops max, 40 byte packets 1 * * * 2 * * * 3 * * * 4 * * * ...
If I do
ssh -l user 10.211.55.6 from the SuSE virtual machine everything connects ok but if I do
ssh -l user 10.211.55.5 from the Red Hat virtual machine I get “Connection timed out”.
Both systems are connected to the internet and I can surf the net. What am I doing wrong? Why I can't SSH from Red Hat to the SuSE virtual machine?
