I'm attempting to set up a node.js server on my Ubuntu guest OS running on VirtualBox.
A simple "Hello World" HTTP server runs fine if I try accessing it from a browser on the Ubuntu image, but I'm struggling with opening the page on a browser in the host OS, which is Windows 7.
I'm using the "Bridged Adapter" setting in VirtualBox and am getting a 192... local IP address for the guest machine.
The server listens on port 8124, so I forwarded that port (TCP and UDP) in my router settings.
When I try opening [Ubuntu IP Address]:8124 in my browser, I get a 'could not connect' message. As I mentioned before, "localhost:8124" on an Ubuntu browser shows me the "Hello World" page I want.
Any help on this issue would be much appreciated.
