ubantu vmware, can not reach ip address

I set up an ubantu virtual machine using VirtualBox. I can ping the internet from this virtual machine. It shows an ip address like Which is different from my LAN subnet (192.168.1.xxx).

I can ping my host machine from the virtual machine, but not the other way around. Can some one point out how to connect to the virtual machine address. Do I need to set up NAT?

By default, it chooses NAT for VMs you create. You can choose "Bridged networking" that would make the VM use 192.168.1.x subnet. For a more detailed explanation, check the URL below.
