How to configure Windows Firewall for a website?


I have a program that is running a website off my laptop. It is installed and setup correctly. When I access the website from my browser in the laptop, I do not have any issues.

However, nobody in the my office can access the website from other devices. I suspect it is Windows Firewall setting because when I turn off the Windows Firewall for private network, the other devices are able to detect the website.

However, I have no idea what port? Inbound rule? Outbound rule? that I have to set in the Windows Firewall so that the other devices can access the website sited in my laptop.

Any suggestion or opinion is welcomed.

Thank you,

you have to configure FW for prive network to allow inbound rule for port 80. Thats all.
