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,
