Opera Developer refusing connection to virtual machine

  • Hi. I run Windows 8.1 and an Ubuntu virtual machine for web development. I set up virtual hosts for each of my sites and that's all fine, but when I got to my VM IP address ( in Opera Developer I get this:

    Connection refused:

    In Opera 12 & Chrome it works and I get a webpage which displays the site directories - which is what I'm expecting.

    Why is Opera Developer returning "connection refused" and how can I fix this?
    Thank You.
