We have a PHP Apache web application that is running on a Windows 2012-R2 VM server. All works fine on Localhost, but when we try to view remotely by pointing to http://<FQDN-of-Server>:8080
we get the error message:
You don't have permission to access / on this server.
Apache/2.4.18 (Win64) PHP/5.6.19 Server at <Server-Name> Port 8080

WampServer Version 3.0.4 64bit.
Have tried to change config files to allow all, and also configured the Wamp to 'put online'. Local firewall on Windows server has rules to permit incoming traffic on port 8080. Nothing has helped. Please advise.
