Port forwarding in virtual box 4.1 doesn't work

Reported by: spamme Owned by:
Component: network/NAT Version: VirtualBox 4.1.0
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: Windows Host type: Windows


I configured a virtual box (WAMP) to forward the request from the host (windows 7 64 home premium) port 8888 to the client (windows xp sp3) port 80, but it doesn't work, I have also added an exception to the firewall for the port 8888 but it wasn't the problem.

I have also asked in the forum a couple of times ( but nobody has replied.

Here a screen shot showing the virtual box port forwarding configuration, the web server working inside the virtual box, the exception rule on the firewall for the port 8888 and the failed request from the host to the client.

Does anything change for you if you switch your firewall off?

Replying to Hachiman:

No but it does when I turn off the firewall of the guest. I opened the port 80 on the guest firewall and it started to work. Strange, I was sure that apache opened it when it has been installed.

Thanks anyway.
