Accessing localhost from virtual machine or Android Emulator

Two problems- one solution i.e. 10.0.2.2

Sometime back, I faced an issue that I had installed a virtual machine on mu linux machine. I had a server/ website running which I wanted to access from virtual machine. http://localhost/site simply refused to work. A little googling helped with an answer to use http://10.0.2.2/site

Again faced similar issue. Was trying to access local website from within android emulator. Again localhost refused to work. And guess who was the rescuer? yep 10.0.2.2 again 🙂
