How to access Odoo in a local Ubuntu server?

I installed Odoo 9 in an Ubuntu 14.04 Server (64-bit) in VirtualBox 5.010 in my PC. How do I access Odoo through my Chrome browser? I need this set-up so that I can demonstrate Odoo withouth a network connection. 

My IP address for eth0:

I tried http://localhost:8069 and but they both don't work.

Also did the following:

Inside VM (called Ubuntu) changed the /etc/network/interfaces to a static IP

The interfaces file looks like this:

iface eth0 inet static






Then, set up the host-only adapter as follows:

In File>Preferences>Network>Host-only Network Details, Adapter tab, set IPv4 Address to, IPv4Network Mask to

But, when I started the VM, I get this error:

Failed to open a session for the virtual machine Ubuntu.

Failed to open/create the internal network 'HostInterfaceNetworking-VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter #2' (VERR_INTNET_FLT_IF_NOT_FOUND).

Failed to attach the network LUN (VERR_INTNET_FLT_IF_NOT_FOUND).

Result Code: E_FAIL (0x80004005)

Component: ConsoleWrap

Interface: IConsole {872da645-4a9b-1727-bee2-5585105b9eed}

By default it's run on http://localhost:8069

the port part could vary depending of the configured port of your Odoo instance

If I understand you correctly you want to acces the odoo interface in your hosting OS's chrome, right?

To me this looks like a network configuration problem of Virtual Box. In order to not go through a network you should put the network settings of VB to host-only adaptor. That should give you and IP address in a 192.158.56.xxx range. I think after you did that you might want to consider to setup a static IP ( for example) for your Virtual machine that is hosting the odoo server, so you always find it under the same address.

  1. Inside Virtualbox select your VM > Settings >Network. Choose 'Host-only adapter' there

  2. Inside your VM change the /etc/network/interfaces to a static IP

  3. access odoo from your hosting OS's browser @ (assuming you have set the static IP of you ubuntu VM to
