what ip do you use ?

if you are using 127.0.0.1 then it is ALWAYS (or at least in 99% cases) the localhost ip.

so, you need to figure out what network ip has the machine with WAMP using:

cmd -> ipconfig

and then use the ip on remote machine. also, if you try to connect to WAMP with a browser, you need to use HTTP port (usually 80, but might have been set up to some other value)

can you please post here the result of ipconfig from machine with WAMP ?

My WAMP server IP is 10.0.20.10. Remote workstation access to my server using http://10.0.20.10.

What I see is that the IE change from 10.0.20.10 to http://localhost.  I guess I need to configure something on the WAMP server.
