Local browing only WAMP/Drupal

I have Win 7 and Virtual PC installed.  In VPC I have a Win2003 virtual machine with IIS not enabled.  I installed WAMP on 2003 and can see the default web pages using localhost on the VM.   I installed Drupal and can browse the app on the win2003 VM using localhost.  My problem is I get a forbidden page when I try to get to it from the Win7 host.  Seems like a rights issue but I have not been able to find what exact Windows rights need to be on the WAMP folder.  I have tried to open it up to  anything and everyone but still get forbidden.

I figured it out.  It was Apache ACL settings.  The httpd.conf file.  The rights for www folder in that file showed:

Deny from alll
Allow from 127.0.0.1

Changed to:
Allow from all

Restarted Apache.  good.

A virtual machine uses a virtual network card, try looking for the ip assigned
You can do it easy, Home / Run / cmd
ipconfig

And try accesing the apache in win2003 from win 7 using the ip via http

The VM is configured correctly.  It picks up it's own IP and I can browse to the VM file system from multiple machines.  It appears to be something with Drupal or WAMP.  I suspect WAMP or Windows file rights.  I threw a basic web file in the www root and I get a 403 forbidden error from remote machines.  Works fine from the VM ocalhost.
