I'm trying to connect to a PostgreSQL database hosted on a Win7 guest from a Win7 host.
I've configured security in pg_hba.conf
host all all 127.0.0.1/32 md5 host all all 10.0.2.15/32 md5 host all all 192.168.1.6/32 md5
and set the listen_addresses setting in postgresql.conf to '*'.
I think I've set up port forwarding correctly as I see:
Key: VBoxInternal/Devices/e1000/0/LUN#0/Config/win7_vm1/GuestPort, Value: 5432 Key: VBoxInternal/Devices/e1000/0/LUN#0/Config/win7_vm1/HostPort, Value: 5432 Key: VBoxInternal/Devices/e1000/0/LUN#0/Config/win7_vm1/Protocol, Value: TCP
when I call getextradata.
This is similar to http://serverfault.com/questions/106168/cant-connect-to-postgresql-on-virtualbox-guest but I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.
In the vbox.log file I see:
00:00:01.019 NAT: set redirect TCP host port 5432 => guest port 5432 @ 10.0.2.15 00:00:01.033 NAT: failed to redirect TCP 5432 => 5432
but I'm not sure how to fix that. Any ideas? Thanks.
