There are several threads regarding accessing host's localhost from a guest OS. None attracts my specific problem, therefor IMHO this question isn't a duplication.
I did follow all the steps appear on other threads. My default gateway is 192.0.0.1. Pinging to it is positive, opening this url in browser brings me to the router login page. Adding my localhost port brings a 502 http error .
I'm running my VM in bridged mode, without "replicating physical network connection state"
I tested the traffic using fiddler, and he responded that "No connections could be made because the target machine actively refused it"
I disabled firewall in both sides. I also disabled proxy in IE browser, and ran ipconfig /release & /renew.
Than I thought- lets try accessing my pc from my vmware. I see it in my network but the folder isn't accessible. Other yes. Other people here in my job can access my pc, without any problems.
I have no idea where more to go or to try. Hope someone here might be able to help me. Thank you!
