    cannot login outside of local computer


    I setup a file server [samba] on a debian vm, and I can access it through the main computer i have vmw fusion installed on [it's a mac]. However, I cannot even access it on my other mac or windows 7 computer w/ putty, using SSH; the connection always times out.

    Thank you!
