Try connecting to the ip address of the virtualbox host-only network, verify firewall settings in Windows and Knoppix as well. Try disabling the firewall in Knoppix for a start.

Hi, in the virtual box menu, goto devices->network adapters, select "port forwarding" add a rule for host port 22 and guest port 22, press ok. You will probably get a windows network message, allow it. Now putty to the ip address of the VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter (lookup ip address with ipconfig /all in windows). Note that in Knoppix, you may have to disable the firewall and install/enable sshd.
