I am running ubuntu 9.10 two ways: (a) as the host OS on one machine I will call ``Machine A'' (or just "A"), and (b) as a guest OS (in Oracle VM virtualbox 3.2, upgraded today from sun virtualbox 3.1) on another machine I will call ``Machine B'', (or just "B"). The host OS of Machine B is Win XP Pro. On A, I have installed sun virtualbox, and for a while that worked well.
I'm running VirtualBox 4.2.4 on a Windows 7 x64 host. I installed a Xubuntu guest system. The VM has network access through NAT. VirtualBox is configured to act as DHCP server (setup by default) and listens on 192.168.56.100.
I installed CentOS 6.3 and Ubuntu Server 12.04 guests using VirtualBox on a Windows XP 32-bit host (laptop). To access the internet on my host machine, I am using a Huawei E586 Mobile Wifi hotspot, which supports internet connections via both a micro USB cable and wirelessly.

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.
