How to set up a virtual machine and use CUPS remote administration on host

view story

http://askubuntu.com – I'm not sure this is the appropriate forum to post this question to so if it is not, please be kind. It is my goal to set up a virtual machine using Oracle VM VirtualBox which is capable of being accessed by the host through a web page. I'm attempting to use the virtual machine as a Samba server that also runs CUPS. I think this is similar to running a web server on a virtual machine, but I am limited in this area as well. I have set the virtual machine's network adapter as bridged, however when I attempt to open a browser and navigate to http:// ipaddress of virtual machine:631 I get nothing (HowTos)
