Gettin pfSense working on Ubuntu 15.10 host with VirtualBox

I am trying to get pfSense installed on an Ubuntu host using virtualbox. I am able to get pfSense started, it gives me the LAN ip of 192.168.1.1 on em1 but when I type the 192.168.1.1 in my browser, it cannot find the host. I have given the pfSense 2 nic's one Wan, which seems to be working fine after ping, and the other, set as vboxnet0, which is set to a default ip of 192.168.1.1. Can anyone tell me what I am missing. BTW, I'm on a laptop with only 1 wifi port. The second nic I am assuming is virtual as per the vbox setup, that second nic, the LAN, is set up as Host-only adapter. The vboxnet0 ifconfig readout is: vboxnet0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 0a:00:27:00:00:00
inet addr:192.168.1.1 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
inet6 addr: fe80::800:27ff:fe00:0/64 Scope:Link

Can someone please give me some help on getting my host and all other VMs on my laptop to use pfSense as a firewall?
Thank you so much.

is this the type of network interface you intended to assign?
"….and the virtual machines cannot talk to the world outside the host since they are not connected to a physical networking interface."
