TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library

newbie - can't access rails app

Hi. I'm relatively new to Ruby (but I have read three books on it) and rails. I just installed the Turnkey Rails VM. Everything is working well. I followed the instructions on the RubyOnRails website to create my first rails app (rails myapp, etc) and all of the files seem to have been installed. BUT when I visit http://IP-ADDRESS:3000 I get a page load error. I searched this forum for old answers to this question and found one about a year ago saying that I should configure a new virtual server in Apache (which I did) on a new port (which I did) and open that port in the firewall (which I did), BUT I still cannot access myapp [and I am using the new port number that I assigned which is 4000].. Any help is appreciated.
