Connecting to a .Net web service running in the asp.net Development server using IP Address

This is hopefully an easy one - me missing something obvious.
I've got a web service written in VS2010. I run it and it fires up in the development server, port 3730.
I can access it and debug it with no problem at all using the URL as follows:
http://localhost:3730/WebService.asmx.
If I change the localhost to my IP address:
http://l192.168.2.31:3730/WebService.asmx
I get a Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage error.
Its an issue cos I'm trying to access the WS from a Windows mobile PDA Emulator and it doesn't want to connect.
Any ideas ?

Yes - it was a typo. It should have read http://192.168.2.31.
So to re-cap, if I use the "Localhost" URl it's fine.
Use my IP address - doesn't work.
127.0.0.1 DOES work.
But the emulator can't use that - it needs to access it via the IP address.
Even using my machine name doesn't work.
I'm sure I am missing something obvious.

Can you tell me how you are testing this setup, and which emulator that you are using?

Emulator is WM5, but it's the same from all of them.
And it's not the emulator which is the issue. It's trying to access the WS via an IP address that's the problem.
I've solved it though I think now by hosting the WS in IIS rather than the .Net development server.
It's still a mystery why the development server doesn't seem to like being addressed via IP address.
Bit weird.
