Guest: Ubuntu 9.04
I'm running dynamic port forwarding on my guest over an ssh connection ala "ssh -C -D 1080 me@externalserver", which effectively creates a SOCKS5 proxy listening on 1080 on the guest. I can configure Firefox within the guest to confirm the successful operation of the proxy.
My Host has been configured as follows for this VM:
- Code: Select all Expand viewCollapse view
<ExtraDataItem name="VBoxInternal/Devices/pcnet/0/LUN#0/Config/socks/HostPort" value="1566"/>
<ExtraDataItem name="VBoxInternal/Devices/pcnet/0/LUN#0/Config/socks/GuestPort" value="1080"/>
<ExtraDataItem name="VBoxInternal/Devices/pcnet/0/LUN#0/Config/socks/Protocol" value="TCP"/>
When I try to configure my Firefox proxy on my host for localhost:1566 I always get a "Connection reset by peer"
Running Wireshark on my guest confirms the receipt of traffic from 10.0.2.2 to 10.0.2.15 on port 1080
No firewall is running on the Host.
What is my problem?
