Can't connect from remote computers

Postby jsherk » 08. January 2009 22:29

Thanks for this!!! It was an easy install, and I had it up and running in no time! I installed it on my Win XP Pro SP2 machine and I can access everything from http://localhost on my machine.

My question is, how do I use my machine as a server now, and access it from other machines on our LAN. I have set my machine up with a fixed IP address of 192.168.10.77, and all the other machines on our lan are setup similarly (192.168.10.xxx).

When I go My Computer and select Map Network Drive, when I put \\192.168.10.77 in, it says "Network Path Could Not Be Found". If I use ping 192.168.10.77 from the command line of another computer, I succesfully get Packets: sent=4 received=4 lost=0

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

What do you want to access? Do you want to display the Website? Then call http://192.168.10.77 at a client machine. If you want to transfer your website onto the server, you either have to Share the htdocs folder or start the FTP-Server.

Also you should open up Port 80 in your Firewall, if you use one.

Display the website was what I was trying to do... I somehow thought I had to connect to it by mapping a network drive but calling http://192.168.10.77 at a client machine worked perfect and was what I was trying to do!!

Thanks!
