Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I have shared the htdocs folder (compA) across the network and can access from compB i just cannot get the website to display in a browser. i have gone to /security in the htdocs folder and i have permissions set to anyone across the network can access it.
Thanks for any help.
You can use the "hosts" file on your comps to define a domain name for use while testing if you like. Point the domain name on compA (your server) to "localhost" or "127.0.0.1" and point the same domain name on compB (client comp) to the LAN IP address of your server.
The location of the hosts file varies, but the filename is always the same regardless of the OS... Just "hosts" - all-lowercase and no file extension.
