RoR vmware question (I have cross posted): Trying to web-browse my
Webrick server running Llinux on vmware Guest from Windows host.
Clearly I can't do an http://localhost:3000/.  So how can I access my
Linux Webrick server guest from Windows?

I assume that with a bridged or host-only setup, you would browse to
your virtual machine name, not localhost.

If I use a Host-only network...

In the VM, run ifconfig (I use Ubuntu), that reports 192.168.64.128 as
the IP address of the virtual machine.

In Windows, browse to http://192.168.64.128:3000, and presto, the Rails
app.
