My host OS is windows 8 and my guest OS is lubuntu. Basically, I am trying to run a Django server form my guest OS on
0.0.0.0:8000 so that I can access it from my host OS.
I posted how I can access the server from my host OS on stackoverflow.
In the post, one of the users suggested that I should change the network to 'bridge-mode'. What I tried was this:
- I went to VMWare Player
- Clicked 'Player -> Manage -> Virtual Machine Settings'
- Changed 'Network Adapter' from 'NAT' to 'Bridged'
After doing this, my guest OS lost internet connection. I ran the django server on
0.0.0.0:8000 and could access it by going to either
192.168.174.233:8000 from the guest OS (my guest OS's IP address is
192.168.174.233.. my host OS's IP address is
192.168.2.37), but I couldn't access it from either of the two links from the host OS..
Am I bridging the connect correctly or am I doing something wrong?
