I've just set-up a new dev environment where I have a win 7 host and ubuntu running in virtual box.
My rails application files are on the host system, and I shared the folder with the guest, and I run the rails server on the guest and connect to it through the host via guest IP address
http://10.1.1.10:3000. I can load up web pages in a host browser which are being run from the guest web server. All that is going great.
The guest views the host files in the directory
When attempting to open a file through rails via
I get a file not found error. When I attempt to open the file in the host browser via the guest web server at
the server gets the page no problem.
Is there a routing problem with rails that I should be looking at? Or is this a virtualbox issue?
I'd normally post this to StackOverflow, but thought I'd likely be recommended to post this here.
