I have windows 7 installed and I am running VMware player with Ubuntu as the guest OS. I installed Etherpad which runs on http://localhost:9000 in the VMware player. In the VMware player itself I can connect to the site with localhost:9000. If I look up the IP of the VMware player, I get some IP address. The problem is that I neither can connect from the windows system nor directly from the VMware with the IP address.
vmware: localhost:9000 -> works vmware & windows: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:9000 -> does not work
I can't find a solution how to connect. It's in bridged mode.
