[GemStone-Smalltalk] Problem to connect repository running on VirtualBox machine

Here are a few thoughts.

1. When port forwarding with Virtual Box, the source IP address is 
maintained. If you are only listening on and Jade is 
attempting to connect to instead of ::1, the connection will fail.

2. The logs indicate it is trying to listen on '::' and '::1'. Did you 
by chance change STN_LISTENING_ADDRESSES in your system.conf? '::' will 
cover '::1'. This could explain the error message you are seeing in the log.

3. Perhaps you need to add your LAN address to STN_LISTENING_ADDRESSES 
or listen on ''. This may help if Jade is attempting to connect 
over IPv4.

Hope this helps,
