I'm trying to develop a Rails app, and I'm using the Windows XP mode (Windows Virtual PC) under Windows 7 to allow testing under Internet Explorer 8.
I have XP Mode setup to use the host's network card, and can freely access the internet, and ping in both directions. I have (temporarily!) turned off Windows firewall on both machines.
I'm running a Rails server on port 3000 of the host, and have specified that it should bind to the host's IP (rather than 0.0.0.0). However, I cannot view the app from IE8 on the XP Mode VM (pointing it to :3000).
Any suggestions what might be wrong?
