Forum Thread: Metasploit is stuck after sessions is open. Meterpreter doesn't show up

I'm experimenting with Metasploit and using it on my own machine.

I'm running Kali Linux on VirtualBox and trying to open a meterpeter session to my host Win 10 OS.

I generate a reverse_tcp payload, execute it on my host OS (Windows 10), and run exploit/multi/handler in Kali.

The session opens but meterpreter doesn't show up and nothing really happens. The metasploit is getting stuck at this point

If I try to cancel the exploit with Ctr+C my whole machine freezes and I have to reboot it.

I think maybe the problems appear because the Kali Linux is a VM and I should somehow configure the VM box?
