Emil, I looked the R capabilities and tcl/tk is not missing! The only one missing are aqua and profmen.

Emil, I installed the virtual image you suggested and everything works fine as of now. I just imported the "sage-lite-vm-a1.ova" to the virtual box, I accepted the settings, and after it has started I changed the network connection to "bridged connection" and that was all. Thank you all for your help.

Emil,thank you for the answer. I will try this and let you know what the result is. As I mentioned above, the reason why I went with the live CD is that the pre-made sage virtual machine for Windows had some problems with R graphics. This was not the case with the live CD, so I though of giving it a try. Any suggestions are welcome.

I don't know if it matters or not, but if I choose something else than NAT (Host-only or Bridged Network), the option "Port Forwarding" is disabled.

How do you connect to the server by ssh?

Is there a way to add an exception to the Firewall for Sage? I am not sure if turning off the Firewall altogether is recommended.

I turned off Windows Firewall. The only link to firewall on Puppy Linux I found was Menu>Network>Network Applications>Unix Firewall firewall and when I click on it, it tries to install the firewall. So, my assumption is that it is not installed. Anyway. The error message now is "The connection has timed out", but it still does not connect.

I tried what you suggested: name = guestsage, Protocol TCP, Host IP 127.0.0.1, Host Port 8000, Guest IP leave blank, Guest Port 8000, but it does not work.

As a side comment: The reason I tried to create a new VM is that the pre-made Sage VM on Fedora does not support the R capabilities I needed. In particular there is no X11 installed and I keep getting error messages when I try to execute some R code with graphics. I looked around for an answer, but I didn't really find anything helpful (maybe I didn't look hard enough). My assumption was that it is an easy fix (just give an update commnand), but I am not a Unix user and I needed some more guidance than "run an update command". Some step-by-step instructions would be more helpful, but I got frustrated with what I was finding.

Volker Braun thank you for your answer. The VM setting is "Adapter 1:Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop (NAT)". I guess this will do it. I do not know how to forward port 8000 from Windows to the VM. Any help?

Hello, I just installed Sage in a Virtual Machine (VM) using SageLIVE-511-47 and it works fine in the VM but I can not access it from the host operating system (Windows). When I point the browser to localhost:8000 in the VM, Sage appears. When I point the browser to localhost:8000 in Windows, I get an error message. (Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost:8000.) It seems to me a small problem, but I have no idea what to do. Any help would be appreciated.
