Unfortunately this is a virtual machine network configuration issue that is also dependant on your local machine network hardware/software. Pega has no control over this as it is not related to the delivered virtual machine OVA file. The best source of expertise to refer to in order to solve the problem would be the virtual box forums (https://forums.virtualbox.org/). You also have the option of running in another vendors virtual machine as well which may be more compatible with your network hardware/software on your host machine. In the past, people have had success changing to a VMWare virtual machine and importing into this machine.

I know this is an old thread but I thought I'd add some experience of my own:
Summary: Your results will depend on the network to which you are connected!
I am using virtualbox. Originally I had Adapter 1 configured in Bridged mode (as instructed in the VM user guide).
From my hotel room the vm reported a url of "http://:9080" and ifconfig showed no IP address assigned to the adapter.
I also tried with my VPN running but got the same result.
I changed the adapter configuration from Bridged mode (the recommendation) to Host-only. On restarting the vm an IP address is assigned but there is no access from Pega to external addresses.
In a happy experiment I reset the configuration back to Bridged mode and when I got into my customer office today I tried again from their wifi network... and it works! An IP address is assigned and I can access the Pega exercise system from a browser.
So to those of you who see a URL of http://:9080 I would say: go forth... try the coffee shop around the corner... try a friend's house (or a friendly customer)... because it definitely depends on the network as much as anything else.
I even struggled with this issue. Finally under vm settings; I updated the network connection to NAT and restarted the vm. This time I got the URL and when I used the same in the browser, I got the login page. Now I am able on work on this.
