Newly 30-something guy who loves God, people, music, and computers, and happens to be decently good at the latter two.

IT experience is all self- and real-world-taught rather than classroom or book learning. Driven by an insatiable appetite for learning new ways to do things better. With better being defined as more usable to the end user, for which goal IT ought to exist, within bounds of reason.

I'm primarily skilled in Wintel systems and end user support, with hobbies in *nix and growing experience in MS server management, Office 2010 deployment and support, Windows 7 use, and several different types of professional business environments ranging from fast-food mega-conglomo-corps to international law firms to one of the largest corporate banks in the world.

Currently I am Network Administrator for a custom manufacturing firm primarily involved in the energy industry.

Please see the instructions in my solution for turning off the firewall in Debian ^^ and let me know if that works.

Also, in the VM settings, what is the network adapter attached to? It should be set to Bridged Adapter. (Virtual Box, Right click on VM select Settings, Network, Attached to:)

Did you turn off the firewall on the VM? NOT the PC. The VM has its own firewall that needs to be managed.

Did you check the firewall? What is the status of apache2? /etc/init.d/apach2 status. Also, FYI, so far as the VM knows, your computer is a different system than it. Can you ping the VM from your PC? The issue could be you don't have the network setup properly for Virtualbox.

Jonny, are you an admin or a user? If you are not an admin, what is the reason you need/want to do this scan? If you are an admin, nmap is a very handy tool to have around.
