I have installed and setup a guest Mageia 2 on VirtualBox which I plan to use as a development web server. My host is Windows 7 (64-bit) and I want to access the web sites from this host web browser.
I have set VirtualBox Network setting of Mageia guest OS to "Bridged Adapter" and I took the IP address of
eth0 and entered that on my host web browser. But I am getting a timeout so I am thinking that the host and guest OSes are not communicating.
Prior to using Mageia, I had a Debian guest OS with the same setup and when I entered the IP address of the guest
eth0 to my host web browser, the "It works!" page is shown. And I did not do any configurations.
I am thinking that it has something to do with the security features of my Mageia guest OS.
Just a note, the Mageia guest OS is a minimal install -- no GUI and just the bare packages are installed along with the LAMP packages. So everything is CLI.
I don't know where to start in getting access to my web server guest OS from host OS. Any tips?
