Hi Guys,

I am trying to connect my Managed node from the Controller node in Ansible. But it is showing me the below error.

[root@localhost ~]# ansible all -m package -a "name=firefox state=present" | UNREACHABLE! => {
    "changed": false,
    "msg": "Failed to connect to the host via ssh: ssh: connect to host port 22: Connection timed out",
    "unreachable": true

I think there is a problem with your network connectivity. Ansible works on SSH protocol. You need to add one bridge adapter in your system or VM. After that try to ping each managed node.
