Wow - I'm way outside my comfort zone.

I created a little SOCKET app with C++ in my Ubuntu VM running on my MS Surface Pro 7 in vmware

I've got a server and client app that runs in the VM properly - just sending a little test response.

How do I allow access to the port inside the linux VM from the Windows side?

I do not have ufw "active" - I just did a "sudo ufw status" and it's inactive.

Thanks! Steve
