how to access samba on a guest Linux behind the VirtualBox NAT?

I have a VirtualBox running on a Win7 host with an Ubuntu guest. I have started a server in Ubuntu (Guest). How can I access it from the Host windows machine?

I assume I need to run this on a specific IP address, which I can expose to the Host as a LAN networked address?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

@Bobby: first yes (good catch, thanks), second no (it's about accessing the filesystem of a guest, eg directly, not the guest's network services) – quack quixote Feb 26 '10 at 5:36
@~quack: Whoops, you're right, that's swapped. :O – Bobby Feb 26 '10 at 8:26

if you have it set up in bridged mode if you know what ip the server has you should just be able to access it as you would a normal server using putty over ssh etc.
