Unable to access the website on XAMPP through IP address

Postby ajaykumarmeher » 22. July 2009 22:52

Hello Friends,

I have installed Xampp and all services running and everything is fine. But the problem is I am buliding an intranet and want users in my LAN to be able to access the site using the IP address.

Say the IP address of the m/c where XAMPP is installed is 192.168.1.10 and I have my site located in a folder /xampp/htdocs/website1

When on the server I access the site by typing http://localhost/webiste1 and http://127.0.0.1/website1 it works perfectly.
But if I put http://192.168.1.10/website1 from the same server that is the local machine it does not show my site. instead it gives me error:

Network Error (tcp_error)

A communication error occurred: "Operation timed out"
The Web Server may be down, too busy, or experiencing other problems preventing it from responding to requests. You may wish to try again at a later time.


The same error message comes up when any users in LAN try to access the website with IP address i.e. http://192.168.1.10/website1

Any little help or direction to resolve the issue will be greatly appreciated.

Look for your firewall configuration.

Thanks for the reply.

What basically I am going to look for in the firewall. And in the local system where the server is set up the Windows firewall is turned off but the network is using a n enterprise firewall. So what basically I am going to look for in the firewall?

If something is blocking access to port 80 (for Apache).
