Give all computers in a network to access localhost

69 New Member

I just installed apache on my computer (with easyphp).
It works fine. But now i have a question.

I have at my house an network (just a normal house network, where all computers are connected to, so they all can acces the internet).
Is it possible that all my computers can get acces to the localhost here on my computer?

Don't give up yet.

Do you know the IP address of the server running easyphp?

If it's a windows machine, you can pop a DOS box and run the command
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. ipconfig /all
to see your IP address. Look in the output, there should be a line "IP Address". Don't just look at the numbers.

Then you can run
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. netstat -a
to see all the ports your computer is "listening" on.

If the port shows as your computer name (or some variation thereof), you're good.

If the port shows listening on, then it's localhost only.

When i do ipconfig /all, it returns at IP-Adress: and at netstat -a it returns a list with

<myaccountname> :<some port numbers>
<myaccountname> :<some port numbers>
<myaccountname> :<some port numbers>
<myaccountname> :<some port numbers>
<myaccountname> :<some port numbers>
<myaccountname> :<some port numbers>

What can i do with this data to make it happen?

Is your account name the same as your computer name?

What does it say next to ports 80 and 443?

Still, it seems like your web server is running on the external IP address, and not just on the loopback address (

Next, try accessing your own server by using a browser on the same computer:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. HTTP://##.##.##.##/the-rest-here
Hopefully it'll connect locally from the same computer.

'Hopefully it'll connect locally from the same computer.'

Well it doesnt. Shall i check on the other computers what ipconfig /all and netstat-a gives?

I'd hoped you'd managed to figure it out, and simply hadn't followed up.

I'm off for three days in about 10 hours, be forewarned.

Unfortunately at this point I'm a little confused.

Do you know which port your web server is using?

Can you try running the following and posting the result here:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. ipconfig /all > result.txt
  2. netstat -a -b >> result.txt
Then we can see what the addresses are with a good degree of certainty.
