It was the problem that bothered me today.
After strenuous efforts, I resolved it.
I installed SharePoint Server 2019 on Windows Server 2019 in VMware Workstation 15 Pro.
Then I created a new web application using default settings.
jsguru.group.com:29457 was created. See screenshot below.
So far so good.

Step 2. Add the IP address and host name of the web application to the bottom of the hosts file. The hosts file path is
Thus I could get access to the web application.
I hope this helps someone who is trying to do the same thing like me.
