How to open a site via local network?

Postby borus » 25. March 2017 08:33

Hello!

I'm trying to open the site deployed at xampp webserver at some computer in a local network. I'm trying to do it with Chrome at my android phone connected to the mentioned network via wi-fi. When I type http://local_comp_id/site_subfolder in the mobile Chrome, nothing is displayed on the screen. But when I type localhost/site_subfolder at that local computer the site is visible.

Please tell, what else should I check or fix to make the site visible at the phone?
