How are you trying to access the application? If it is through a browser on your host machine goto http://your-vm-ip-address:8000 and wait for a while. This is assuming you have gone through the following commands.
~erp-vm:~$cd frappe-bench
~erp-vm:~$bench start
wait for a while till the application gets ready.

Hope it helps.

First of you can not use as an ip address for the Virtual Machine. If your virtual machine software is VirtualBox go to your virtual machine network settings and
→ select Bridge Networking then
→ select the actual network interface you are using to access the outside network.
→ Then goto you virtual machine stop the running app and run
$ifdown eth0
$ifup eth0
$ifconfig (gives you the ip address of the eth0 interface on the VM)

→ get the ip address from the output
→ run the previous commands to start the app.
→ replace the with the ip you got on bullet one.


You may have to use ifup and ifdown commands with sudo.
