.. should be complemented on how to allow access from other IPs than localhost (127.0.0.1).
As mentioned here:
.. the python-webserver can be started with to allow access from non-localhost IPs:
python manage.py runserver 0.0.0.0:8000
Restriction to localhost makes sense from a security aspect, but prohibits access in virtual machine environments (like running python/django on a linux server that is hosted on Windows XP or OS/X via VMware).
This took me some time to figure out - a hint on 0.0.0.0:xxxx should help others to avoid the hassle.
