Access your local host from your virtualbox

This is a follow up to setting up virtual box on a mac.

The whole reason for windows on a mac is to test web sites. I needed to access the local host.

It is as simple as using your ip address. I had to dig a bit to find mine because my router assigns me one.

Open terminal and run:

ifconfig

copy the inet setting and paste it into virtualbox browser.

Thats it, you now have access to your local host from virtualbox.
