So I've been working on establishing a ROSBridge connection from an Ubuntu virtual machine for a web application that I'm working on in windows using the tutorial located here: RosBridge Tutorial

Basically the problem I'm having is that when I run the terminal commands within the ubuntu virtual machine, and then run the sample html file that triggers the ROS connection, the connection is successful within the following environments:

-Within Mozilla Firefox browser located on the local machine's ubuntu virtualbox

-From a windows firefox browser's remote connection (within the same local network) to the virtualbox's ip address

However, whenever I try to run the sample file from the windows firefox browser's local connection to the virtualbox's ip address, I can't connect at all. The only difference I can think of is the fact that I have an IIS express server that I run my web application from (which I've tried disabling already) and that the virtualbox connection is being run from this machine.

So my question is: how can I connect to ROSBridge for my web application from the same system that is running the ubuntu virtual machine running ROSCore/Rosbridge?
