I am new to Parallels. I have been using Vagrant with VirtualBox for a few months. This week I purchased a copy of Parallels Desktop 15 for Business. Parallels Desktop 15 for Business Vagrant, Installed Version: 2.2.5 MacOS: 10.14.6 First thing I did was install the plugin $ vagrant plugin install vagrant-parallels Next I tried creating a centos7 guest. $ mkdir centos7p $ cd centos7p $ vagrant init "generic/centos7" $ vagrant up --provider=parallels The box begins to load and finally I see the following: ==> default: Registering VM image from the base box 'generic/centos7'... ==> default: Creating new virtual machine as a linked clone of the box image... ==> default: Unregistering the box VM image... ==> default: Setting the default configuration for VM... ==> default: Checking if box 'generic/centos7' version '1.9.28' is up to date... ==> default: Setting the name of the VM: centos7p_default_1568126911696_44025 ==> default: Fixed port collision for 22 => 2222. Now on port 2200. ==> default: Preparing network interfaces based on configuration... default: Adapter 0: shared ....... ==> default: Waiting for machine to boot. This may take a few minutes... default: SSH address: 10.211.55.14:22 default: SSH username: vagrant default: SSH auth method: private key default: Warning: Connection refused. Retrying... default: Warning: Connection refused. Retrying... default: Warning: Connection refused. Retrying... default: Warning: Connection refused. Retrying... I checked the SSH configuration: $ vagrant ssh-config Host default HostName 10.211.55.15 User vagrant Port 22 UserKnownHostsFile /dev/null StrictHostKeyChecking no PasswordAuthentication no IdentityFile /Users/somewhere/.vagrant.d/insecure_private_key IdentitiesOnly yes LogLevel FATAL This is not what I am used to. Normally vagrant used a port forward with virtualboxes. So I checked and can not access port 22 on 10.211.55.15. SSH is running and no firewall is enabled. I tried other Boxes. They all do the same things, Ubuntu, Centos, does not seem to matter. I googled around for a while but did not find any solutions. Any assistance would be appreciated.
