I'm new to virtualBox so please bear with me.
I have a win 7 Ultimate N host (my physical machine) I have a virtual machine with win 2008 server running sharepoint which I want to access from public internet.
My Host virtual IP: 192.168.56.1 My Host physical IP: 192.168.0.15
MY Virtual machine (Guest) IP: 192.168.56.102
WHat I have done so far....
Activated NAT adapter and using the port forward option: Host: 192.168.56.1 Host port: 10000 Guest: 192.168.56.102 Guest port: 80
On my router/modem's firewall forwarded port 10000 requests to: 192.168.0.15
Rebooted Virtual Machine.
However, when I browse even from my physical machine to: 192.168.0.15:10000 nothing happens. And when I click diagnose in IE, it finally gives me: "The remote device or resource wont accept the connection".
I can browse the sharepoint site from my physical machine by using the virtual box ip address and machine name: 192.168.56.102
SO I turned off windows firewall, but still mo joy.
