Hi all.

I am running Ubuntu in VirtualBox and have setup ssh access ok from the host
to the guest (changed network to bridged)
Now I want to be able to remotely connect to my virtual machine from outside of my lan...is it just a case of setting up port forwarding on my router or am I over simplifying it? Is there a way to reserve an IP address for my virtual machine? :confused:

Yep, simply setup port forwarding to the IP address of your VM. Give the VM a static IP or setup an address reservation in your router.
