VirtualBox: port forwarding to guest from host

Something weird in the new (2015-06) version.


  • Network
    • Set "NAT"
    • Click "Port Forwarding"
    • "Insert new rule" (right-hand nav button)
      • Rule 1
        • Host IP: 127.0.0.1
        • Host port: 2222
        • Guest IP: [leave blank]
        • Guest Port: 22
To get to guest:

ssh -p 2222 myuser@localhost

where myuser is user you created when you installed Linux OS on to VM.
