ADMIN XAMPP IN SAME NETWORK and JOOMLA, DRU FTP LOCAL ACCESS

THIS A GUIDE TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM
Problem: When I installed XAMPP ver 5.5.19 in my MAC OSX 10.6.8 I can´t open the "server" using other WINDOWS pc in the same network. This is because the mac "xampp server" is a old machine and it will be used only for test. So if you have the same problem this is the solution:

1.- You need to access into /etc directory of xampp instalation: USUALLY:
/applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/etc

2.- There you need to change 2 files:
a) for access to admin xampp server in the same network: httpd.conf
b) for acced via ftp to joomla, drupal, or other bitnami app: proftp.conf

ACCES xampp server in the same network
3.- in httpd.conf you need to change this:
Listen 12.34.56.78:80
Listen 80

you need to put # at beginning
#Listen 12.34.56.78:80
Listen 8+ç`´

by default xampp put Listen 12.34.56.78:80 without #, it says to server that only use a specific ip (localhost)
if you put # cancel that directive and permit the acces to other machines in the same network

ADMIN JOOMLA, DRUPLA ETC via FTP in the same network
4.- In proftp.conf you nned to delete htdocs in this lines:
# Normally, we want files to be overwriteable.
<Directory /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/*>
AllowOverwrite on
</Directory>

# only for the web servers content
DefaultRoot /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs

then it will be:
# Normally, we want files to be overwriteable.
<Directory /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/*>
AllowOverwrite on
</Directory>
# only for the web servers content
DefaultRoot /Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles

it gives you access to ftp server on root directory, its important to say that user is daemon and password daemon of you don`t have change it, if you do, the user is daemon and password is the pass you select when change.
