I am trying to use socat for creating a simple tunnel between 2 IPs in my home network.
2 VM running on VirtualBox
First machine BT5 IP :192.168.1.129
Second machine Windows XP : 192.168.1.131
But when I hit browser with 127.0.0.1:8080 I get following error in console:Code:socat TCP-LISTEN:8080,fork 127.0.0.1:192.168.1.131
socat E unknown device/address "127.0.0.1"
/dev/net/ls shows tun.
What do I need to do to make socat work !!
