I have VirtualBox 4.1.14 on a ubuntu machine, running a VM with Windows XP SP2 installed. I want to setup a bridge connection between my virtualbox and my ubuntu machine. After that i want to hit my apache server running on ubuntu machine from my virtual server.

What all steps are required to be done??

Have you try looking in the VBox option before asking? There is an option to use your guest with a bridge connection. – Anarko_Bizounours Jun 13 '12 at 13:22

While running the machine, go to [Devices/Network Adapters] and change to bridged mode.
