Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have set up an Apache web server on a windows 7 ultimate VM guest machine. This machine also has all the software I need to develop server-side scripts (aptana, VS 2008 etc)

The VM is bridged with its own ip address 10.1.10.19 and the apache server is listening on port 80

http://localhost and http://localhost:80 both work on the guest VM - so the apache server is working OK

However, I cannot access the webserver from the host machine (ip address 10.1.10.15) , nor any other VM on the host machine that are also networked with a bridge

How can I set things up so the host and all other VMs on the host can see the web server?

From a browser in the host I have tried
http://10.1.10.19
http://10.1.10.19:80

but with no luck

EDIT: Also accessing 10.1.10.19 from a browser on 10.1.10.19 works also

What about 10.1.10.19 from 10.1.10.19 itself ? –  Iain Jan 15 '12 at 9:08
    
That works...see above –  Andrew S. Jan 15 '12 at 9:20
    
can you ping your guest machine ? –  Lucas Kauffman Jan 15 '12 at 9:35

Check to see if a firewall rule needs to be created. To test, turn the firewall off entirely (but don't leave it that way).

Yes, that was it. I opened a hole in firewall restricted to my intranet and it works OK now...thx –  Andrew S. Jan 15 '12 at 9:35
