I am taking an online course on udacity for full stack developer, one of the courses involves installing virtualbox and vagrant in your computer. in  my case i have a window 10 laptop. I was able to install virtualbox and vagrant correctly. According to the instructions, the first vagrant command is vagrant up, then vagrant ssh

i can get in the virtual manchine runnig ubuntu. however, the instructions say to do an ls command and you should see the files in the virtualmachine as in your pc, however i DONT

i read through it, it also says to cd to vagrant directory. this is not very good instructions. the correct instructions should be:

commands:
1. $ vagrant up
2. $ vagrant ssh


Once you are in the virtualmachine, send these commands:
1. $ cd /vagrant
2. $ ls

NOW you will see all the files from your local computer
catalog  forum  tournament  Vagrantfile

done

I was following their instructions, and all i keep seing was this file: redis-stable.tar.gz

The following is my output from each command:
