Check if viewpoint services are running on your Express VM or not.
Steps to follow.
 
Service status.
Open Terminal and give below command
#/opt/teradata/viewpoint/bin/vp-control.sh status
If you see Viewpoint service status as unused or any other services are unused then you may start the services with he below command.
#/opt/teradata/viewpoint/bin/vp-control.sh start
Note: PostgreSQL services will not be started by executing above script, to start postgres run
#/etc/init.d/postgresql start
After starting services wait for approx 10-15 minutes for portlets to be initialized, It is a VM on Windows so it takes time.
 
Port 9080 is not required simply localhost should work for you.
You can test by using WGET command in terminal
#wget localhost:9080
or
#wget localhost
see if you get login.html or index.html page downloaded.

Thank you very much for the respnse.
I have found that there is an issue with settings of the .vmx, it is working now.
