You have to change some settings in the apache config file. You could try to do a search for 127.0.0.1 and replace that by 192.168.*.* to let all pc's with an ip starting with 192.168. connect to it. On the other pc you have to type the ip of the server instead of localhost and it should work.
thanks rvec ill try it...
I have big problem in past on Win with configuration of my netvork (server is not Apache). I am solved this problem trought TCP/IP file with name hosts (without extionsion) in C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc. You can open it with Notepad. Your TCP/IP where is server must have 192.168.*.* (write any number for two second numbers *). Now, open hosts file on second computer and just write there below the name of site(s) (I am using multiple names each for one site). For example:
Save and close. That's all. Now you can start to surf on your localhost. Of course, some problems can come out if your network is not Win properly seted.
can i ask if wer can i find dat?? thank u for ur help i really appreciate it
That only makes it more complicated. It's not needed here and the info I gave should suffice. You can ofcours use the hosts file to type "mysite" in the address bar instead of the ip but first you have to get the ip working. If that's working you can try the hosts file.
rvec ive tried but it sems dont work.. wat will i type n the adres bar while using another computer??
ive tried it but there is pop up and asking for a username and a password...
thanks i made it... thanks rvec for your great help...
how did you turn it online??? heheheh
if u have WAMPserver installed just go to your tray icon > left click > put online. DONE. Than open a browser page and call your IP adress. GL !
that only works internally (if you're in the same lan as the server). If you have a modem between you and the server you have to turn on port forwarding. You can do this if you login to the modem/router over the web interface with most routers.
Go on the computer that you can access at local host. Open up Command Prompt.
Start>All Applications>Accessories>Command Prompt
The type "ipconfig" it'll list three things. I believe it's the first one. and then go on another computer and type that IP Address in.
Yes the one i used is the top one, 192.168.1.43.
just find your computers ip ( in lan ), then type that ip into the browsers address bar.
Finding the ip of computer:
1. Right click on the lan icon in system tray, and click the ( i think preferences, it must be ). (Using Turkish Windows, so i don't know the words. )
search for the ip, (192.168.X.X, 10.0.X.X)
We use a Belkin utility to connect, we also have a router.
if we have dedicated ip. posible or not if we want make our localhost online?
