Currently, I am in a team developing a web application that supports IEs. My development environment runs under Centos.
Some UI problems appear on IE but not other browsers. This situation leads me to be in need of reproducing those problems on my development environment to confirm if my issues are fixed. I tried to install IE on Centos using Wine, but it doesn’t work properly.
So, I think if I could access the web server on the virtual machine in its host?
Below steps are what I did to make it works.
1. Set the Virtual Machine’s Network Adapter to Bridged:
2. Get the IP V4 of the virtual machine using the below command in Terminal:
eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0C:29:11:C1:E8 inet addr:192.168.0.178 Bcast:192.168.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::20c:29ff:fe11:c1e8/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:536823 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:241377 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:537011299 (512.1 MiB) TX bytes:27427710 (26.1 MiB)
Now you can browse your VM’s localhost outside of the virtual machine (your host machine) by replacing “localhost” by “192.168.0.178“.
