I have IIS freshly installed on Windows 7 Ultimate (in a virtual box). From the (guest) machine itself, I can connect using http://localhost or the IP address. I can ping this IP address from the host machine, but cannot connect via HTTP. Does IIS automatically allow remote connections? If not, how may I turn this on?

Note: Guest and host can ping each other using their respective IP addresses.

You likely need to open the port in the firewall, under the Control Panel. Allow port 80 (www) incoming.
