i am on windows 7. i am thinking of setting up a virtual pc/ubuntu with virtual box to act as a (linux) test web server. how can i set it up? i think the default of NAT networking will fail as the virtual PC and my PC (host) is not on the same network?
i guess to make things simple, i need to setup FTP too? so i can easily upload my web apps to the server?
so i think 2 main questions here. setting up virtual box (guest) + windows 7 (host) so that they can "talk" as in a normal web request scenario. another thing will be how shld i setup sharing? an alternative to FTP will be to setup virtual box to be able to access my windows development folder to get the files to serve as they are being developed
