# Notebook access in Sage 7.3 via Oracle VM

I am a new Sage user. I have been experimenting with Sage 7.3 on my Windows laptop using Oracle VirtualBox (Version 5.1.6 r110634). When I initialize Sage in Jupyter, the only way I have been able to use the notebook version is to first open a saved Jupyter Sage document I named Initialize_Notebook_Sage.ipynb and then executing the command **notebook()**. From that point, the application resets (after a short delay) and I have access to previously saved Sage Notebooks with the interface I expected. I tried to access notebooks through a browser using http://localhost:8080, but was unsuccessful.

While this workaround gets me to the desired interface, it is not the most elegant. Is there a way to access the Sage Notebook directly from the Jupyter screen or from the VirtualBox screen?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I ran into similar problems in virtualbox and found that the documentation at https://wiki.sagemath.org/SageApplian... has not been updated for the jupyter notebook yet, so I wasn't able to e.g. access the jupyter notebook through the local Firefox, which worked well with sagenb before. Sorry I can't help, but I hope you will post the solution once you find it.
