How do I access local sites thru Apache server from my internally networked laptop
Posted on 2009-04-02
My Apache 2 server is installed on a W2K machine and is set up to listen at port 8080. I've been using it for months and works fine when accessing local sites on that machine. I now would like to access the same sites from a networked machine that is using a wireless connection. This new machine is a laptop running XP.
I am able to access the server itself, i.e. I can get to Apache's "test" page. And I can run php files from the Apache root directory. But I can't serve up the sites -- these sites are served up fine when I access them from the machine on which the Apache server is installed. Therefore, the virtual hosts are properly set up for use within that machine.
So, I can get to the Apache server, but cannot access any virtual hosts. It just can't make that final leap. I've tried numerous things all to no avail. My gut says it's something simple, but I'm stuck.
Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,
