Learning VM question - do I need port forwarding?

asked 2017-11-18 11:00:57 -0600

Hi, I am trying to run the puppet learning vm, so I started with Ubuntu 16.2 and installed virtualBox. I pulled down the LearningVM and with Vagrant created the image. I am able to launch the puppet learning vm within VirtualBox. I am able to log in ok.

I get the # prompt, and the screen indicates to navigate to

I used my browser, outside of Virtual Box but it just spins on that address.

Do I need to open a port up for this? What is my next step please?

Thanks, CF

within virtualbox settings have you tried configuring networking to NAT (under general settings) - try this and see if ok - you may have to restart the VM afterwards.. also does facter ipaddress show

if above doesnt work then we can try port forwarding -- create an entry for your VMs NAT Adapter under Port-Forwarding - map Host Port 10443 to guest port 443. then go to https://localhost:10443

Thank you, the NAT worked :)
