Access Localhost from a different computer

Hello Experts,

I have 2 Win 7 PCs, on one of which I have IIS and from that PC i can access http://localhost. As well, this PC's IP is 192.168.1.202, so I can access my localhost also with http://192.168.1.202/APD_Website/

On my second PC I dont have IIS, but I want to acess still http://192.168.1.202/APD_Website/, but I get a timeout.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

check the windows firewall on the computer with IIS installed, it may be blocking incoming HTTP request, if the firewall is disabled, check your Anti Virus software, it my have Firewall capabilities and is blocking HTTP.

Hi,

check if firewall on first PC allows the connection on port 80 i.e. HTTP?

 To access firewall rules just type firewall at starmenu and select Windows Firewall with Advanced Security...

If you are using WAMP, you need to enable remote access in the WAMP control panel.  When you left-click on the WAMP tray icon, you should see 'Put Online' as the last line.  Click on that to enable remote access.

I am not using WAMP.

To test, I disabled Windows firewall, and it works. I re-enabled it and it doesnt.

So, under Advanced Security, if I sort by Local Port, under 80 I see 3 entries.  What do I do?

What 3 entries?  IIS (Internet Information Services) normally opens port 80 in the firewall when it is installed.
