I'm running Kubuntu 9.10 with VirtualBox 3.0.12. I also have apache server installed with connections limited to localhost only for development purposes. I've installed WinXP in a Virtual Machine so that I can test web sites in IE but I can't connect to the local server. Typing in http://localhost
into IE in the virtual machine results in the error message below. How can I access my local server from within a virtual machine?
Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage
