Unable to install XPEnology in VirtualBox on Windows 8.1


Recommended Posts

I was following the guide at http://www.xpenology.nl/virtualbox/ in order to install XPEnology in VirtualBox on Windows 8.1 (I was looking to test it to see if it meets my needs) but I kept getting the error "Please configure your router to forward port 23 to Diskstation". This error kept coming up regardless of my setup (NAT/Bridged, static IP/dynamic IP, port 23 forwarded/not forwarded, firewall enabled/disabled); I even used a port scanner in all scenarios and port 23 was always closed.


Anyone have any ideas?


I'm unable to search the forums, as whatever I search for comes up with "The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words"; but I checked all 62 pages of threads, and couldn't see anything that matched my issue. This does seem to be an issue for some, however, as searching Google came up with a few hits, but no solutions.
