I was having issues getting XAMPP to run for users other than admin per this thread. Trying to figure out a solution I had an idea and was curious to know how to make it work. I installed Virtualbox with Ubuntu 12.10. I was able to install and run LAMP successfully. Now in virtual, localhost works and references that particular test environment. If I access localhost on the Windows side I can get XAMPP to work in localhost (admin only). How would I be able to get access to the virtual environment from the Windows side per browser or IP?
