Access local server remotely?

Postby TBakerHR » 11. February 2013 01:46

Hey all...

While I understand what XAMPP is and I've successfully installed it, I'm still a newbie.

I used it so that I can install WordPress locally on my PC...that way I can build my website and the transfer it to my host. My question is this...if I have created a local host, and set up my WP, is there a way I can access it remotely? Like from my laptop while I'm away?

Thanks in advance

If you only mean view your webpage remotely and not develop remotely, yes (but doing so could open you/your webpage to remote attacks as well) assuming the following :
1. XAMPP is running
2. You are not being blocked by a firewall
3. Your ports are forwarded through any routers

If you do not have static IP you will have to keep track of that I believe.
