I'm pretty new to this and I'm probably doing something wrong but I tried connecting to sage using localhost:8000 on firefox and it worked until I started a notebook using notebook() after starting sage in the terminal. To go to the next step, it tells me to connect to localhost:8080. I'm unable to do it. Don't get me wrong it works perfectly in virtual box but I can't go further on my Windows web browser. This would be preferable for me to connect via firefox or any other browsers so that I can use my keyboard setup.

Regarding port 8080, you could have a look on Virtualbox settings to see if the port 8080 of the host is binded to the port 8080 of the VM.

Also, you can let the notebook listen on the port 8000 by typing from the Sage shell:

sage: notebook(port=8000)

Ok so I tried that and it doesn't work. Now it tells me to use port 8001 wich I still can't use. How can I setup the port 8080 in virtual box?

I tried setting it up like this : random name | TCP | | 8080 | 'BLANK' | 8080

This is in virtualbox. It didn't work. What is wrong?
