Oh and on my own machine where wampserver is installed I can do either 192.168.1.2 or localhost of course.

timbosan:
Thanks for that 'meesham', I didn't know about Apache - do you know if it changes the default port of IIS if that's already installed?  Or sets a different default port than 80 for itself?


I'm not sure as I've never tried, I do all my development in a Linux VM instead.

kiwis:

I turned off the firewall (quickly) and went to John's computer. localhost didn't work but 192.1681.2 allowed me to access the www folder within wamp server (the correct place).



I'm not sure what you mean by "allowed me to access the www folder within wamp server (the correct place)", so you could load the website from John's computer? "localhost" will only ever work on the computer that the site is running, it's a reserved name for the computer you're currently using. If you could load the website from John's computer using 192.168.1.2 while the firewall's down it means it's your firewall is what's blocking it and you'll need to open up port 80.

Okay so it's the firewall.

I need to follow ports 80 and 8064?

Also in Win 7 would it be inbound or outbound I need to create a new rule for?

You just need to open port 80 inbound. 8064 will only need to be opened on the router which the forwarding rules should do for you anyway.

why can somone at another office see it via my ip and port number but I can't?


Also what's the difference of inbound and outbound? i thought a webserver would use both.

Normally you would check some basic information about serving web traffic before opening a web server to al the security risks of internet. Inbound means coming from a network into your server while outbound... you can work it out!

If its visible from outside your network then its eather at another location or you are looking at the router instead of the web server from inside your local network. The router will not forward local traffic to another local machine.
