Hi,

I have a Virtualbox image with RedHat installed with Oracle 11.2 installed.

I have SQLPLus installed as a client on macosx

I am trying to connect via SQLplus to Oracle in the image.

I've added this rule to the image config to map the traffic thru

<Forwarding name="tns" proto="1" hostip="127.0.0.1" hostport="1521" guestport="1521"/>

Why cant I connect to this?  Its driving me crazy!!!

Thanks for any help

So the vm is on the macbookpro. I want to be able to connect to without being on a network, hence local loopback address

Loopback is just that. It loops back to the mac if used in the host and it loops back to the Rad Hat system if used in the guest. The guest must have some kind of network connectivity if the host is to interact with it.
It might be that you can configure a network interface on the guest which is only visible to the host, then use that.
