Trouble connecting to VM server

I'm currently having problems getting the Exercise VM running correctly on my system. First system specs:

HOST: MacBook Pro, macOS High Sierra 10.13.2, 16GiB memory, a lot of disk space
VM Software: VirtualBox 5.1.30

I'm able to import the SSA on Pega 7.1.6 VM and start it up. I did make sure the network was enabled before I started. The first time, Ubuntu 12 starts up with "Trying to configure the network". Eventually, I get the console with the message to attempt to login to "http://:9080". Obviously that's not going to work.

I shut it down, head to the network settings for the image and change from Bridged Adapter to NAT. This time, it starts right up, gives me a address. This is great! But I use my HOST browser (Firefox 57.0.3) to try and connect to it and fail.

I then look at the Advanced section of the Network settings and change the Adapter type from PCnet-PCI II to Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop. I leave it set as NAT. It still fails at the browser.

With the Intel PRO... still selected, I switch back to Bridged Adapter and get the "http://:9080" again. Also, with Bridged Adapter, I tried with Promiscuous Mode as Deny (default) and with "Allow VMs".

Any thoughts what I might try?
