Considerations to have a public website on windows 2008 R2 Foundation


We have a windows Server 2008 R2 in which we have installed the last version of XAMPP, if we go to localhost on the server itself, everything goes perfect but If we try to get access from any other computer of the LAN using the server's IP, doesn't work.

Any idea?
