localhost is only related to your own computer.
If you want to access an xampp on another computer you had to request it by its local or public IP-Adress or its computer name.
Maybe this brings you a little bit further.
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!

thank you, I found that by accident when I found three objects in the network map for my wifes comp, I checked the properties of each & I found on the original (first created since i recognized the name) named , the IP (172.16.2.2) addy. then I used localhost & IP which u no didn't work, then I tried the IP and directory/administrator & I was in the back end of my joomla build.

sometime it is a small thing that stops all. thanks to all forumers for their help. I too will help when I know an answer
