I installed a fresh Fedora VM in Gnome Boxes with a webserver reachable under localhost:8080. The VM is accessible from the host via ssh and can be pinged, but I am not able to reach the webserver. Which changes are needed to enable access to the webserver from the host?

Thank you in advance!

I've done that for you and given you some karma so that you can upvote it. And, as a moderator, I've changed you're status from New User to Registered so that you aren't moderated any longer.

you may need to see if firewalld is up systemctl status firewalld if up then open port 8080 to the world firewall-cmd --add-port=8080/tcp add the --permanent so this change will remain in the next boot
