My host is Ubuntu and guest is Windows XP. I'm also running Xampp on Ubuntu with a bunch of virtual hosts. For example I have a host named "ehpc.loc" binded to ip-address. So I need to access this host from guest Windows XP.

I know that I can access localhost via But it only shows a site binded to What I need is to access a site binded to

Any suggestions?
