Apache on VirtualBox

I have a Windows Home Premium on my machine and Fedora 15 on VirtualBox.
The network on VirtualBox Fed15 is as follows
Adapter 1:

Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop (Bridged adapter, Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN)
Ifconfig reveals the following
p2p1 inet addr:
and ipconfig on windows

IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . :
I can ping from both ends and get responses.

On Fedora 15 (VirtualBox) netstat reveals
 netstat -ntlp
Active Internet connections (only servers)

The problem: I have started the apache server and it is listening on port 80, but when i enter the address on my browser thru windows, it doesn't shows anything but an error

Connection closed by remote server

Check that the address is spelled correctly, or try searching for the site.
Any help would be appreciated.
