I have a Mobile Web Server program made by Sphinx-Soft. I have it for my USB Flash Drive, which was made by U3. I have a webpage on it, and it's working fine. However I can't figure out how to access it from another computer.

So my question is how would I access it from another computer?

Thanks alot, Death

Does the web server run as a service on your computer? Do you have to execute the server application? Is it running on port 80 like every other http server? Is the port firewalled? What url do you type in to get to it locally?

Have you searched the Sphinx-Soft website? They have support for you to look at.

I've sort of figured it out, but i'de still like a few opions.


It runs the program off the flash drive.

it uses prt 8080.

it provides you with an address based on the computer you're using.

to get to it localy you can use http://localhost:8080/

I can get it to work on another computer however it I have to type in an IP.

Thanks, Death

thats becuase computer1's "localhost" resolves to a different IP address then computer2's "localhost"

Thanks, but I have it some what resolved. It works, but only if the user type in the ip then the port number. That changes as I move from computer to computer. Do you think it's possible to use PHP with this program?

The the mobile web server will server PHP then you can use it. But PHP isn't going to solve your routing issue. You want to type in something like http://mycomputer.local or something. That is a router problem. You need to tell your router how to resolve IP address 192.168.0.x:8080 to mycomputer.local. See the networking forum for more information

Thanks, I need PHP for password protection, but I'll give a copy of the 4 ips the program uses, and that should solve the problem.

How exactly do you get the server to serve PHP?
