Access Virtual PC Website from Host Browser

Question

I have Virtual PC 2007 running Windows XP. I can access a website setup on the Virtual machine from a browser in the Virtual machine. How do I setup the virtual machine so I can access the website from a browser on the host machine. The host machine is also running WinXP.

Both host and virtual machine can ping each other via IP and computer name.

TIA

Answer

If they can ping each other then you’ve done most, if not all, the things you need to do.

From the host’s browser, you should be able to type the IP address of the guest into the browser address bar and bring the site up. Does this not work?
