I'm using virtualbox and created an ubuntu virtual machine over vm. I installed some web application on ubuntu.

I can access the app 'http://localhost:9999' in linux but when i switched to the windows side, i can not access the url. the network is shared over nat. How can i access that web app someway?

    Should go to Superuser or ServerFault, I'd say. Answer depends on the VM software you're using. – themel Nov 9 '11 at 18:26
  • there are tags called virtualization/virtualbox. that's why this question asked here. – jacklondon Nov 9 '11 at 18:41

Not by using localhost, that's for sure. If using the IP address doesn't work, you may need to configure the application (webserver?) to bind to the global address.

(sidenote: really a serverfault question?)
