I created a SharePoint web application on my vm193 virtual machine. I chose the 7777 port number and named the application Sharepoint AppDev Training. Under the URL, I used http://appdev. I created a root site collection. I can access the site using http://vm193:7777, however I can't access using http://appdev.

How can I point http://appdev to http://vm193:7777?
Why isn't it working?

You cannot unless you are using some sort of proxy server such as ISA in between.

http://appdev means port 80, while your site is running on port 7777.

You can however, create a Url such as http://appdev:7777 to access your site by defining host header.
