I purchased a book and hoping to learn Red Hat Linux.  Per the book have installed Oracle Virtual Box.  I have the default setup of both - freshly installed.  The author uses SSH to connect from Windows 10 (where VirtualBox is installed) to Red Hat virtual machine.  NAT is the default network interface and is the current setting.  I can't connect.  I've tried various things.  Is my problem virtual box config or Red Hat? Windows shows a virtualbox host-only adapter - IP  My VM has IP  The author opened no firewall ports, etc.. Just connected straight away.  Again, I hoping to learn RH - no experience with it or VirtualBox.
