When I open a command prompt on my host system and enter:
nc -lvp 1234
I get the output:
listening on [any] 1234 …
as expected, and when I open a terminal in one of my virtual machines and enter:
nc 192.168.129.1 1234
My host system responds with further verbose:
connect to [192.168.129.1] from VAGRANTASP.ADAM [192.168.129.1] 54039
But when I try to do the same but with roles reversed, no such acknowledgement verbose occurs, but in trying to set up a file transfer system there was infact "something" transferred from virtual OS to host, but it was just a file without an extension and a filename that wasn't alphanumeric.
What am I doing wrong?
