I have a web application running as an http server inside the VMWare Player guest OS, and I'm trying to access the content from the host OS. The guest is running Ubuntu, and the host is running Windows XP.
The problem is, when I try to access the application from a browser in the host OS, the content takes a very long time to load (up to a minute for a single page). A browser in the guest OS can access the application with no problems.
- I've tried using both NAT and bridged networking, but the results are the same.
- The Windows firewall is turned off.
- The connection itself appears fine, as ping requests from guest to host as well as host to guest complete without errors or delays.
- Both guest and host can access the external Internet connection without a problem.
- I'm using VMWare Player.
