    Hi JT,

    Please tell us which browser versions you are using. Firefox is not supported and some versions of IE are not compatible. We have tested with Safari and Chrome.

    Also which virtualizaiton platform are you using? If you used VirtualBox, upon import, the default network connections are recommended.


    Hi JT,

    The port 2222 is used for SSH.
    Can you SSH into the sandbox as root?

    Also make sure your network connections are setup correctly as has been mentioned in the comments before,




    Thx Dave its working fine now.
