I have a VMware linux install serving http. The host machine is Win8.1. I've set VM port forwarding so that I can access the machine from the host with it's IP (

I have a laptop on the same lan over wifi - I would have expected to be able access the machine using IP of the VM. There's no access. I've tried disabling windows firewall on both machines but this has no effect.

Any ideas if there are extra steps I need to take?
