hey,

I swear i found the answer to this the other day somewhere on here but i can't for the life of me remember where.

My question is, i think.... how do you configure the server to listen for its own IP address?

EG: On computer1 (server) "www.myDomain.com" will work in a browser but on computer2 (computer on same network) it does not, you have to enter something like "http://computer1/....." to reach your site.

I have a feeling its somewhere in httpd.conf's "listen" declaration but im unsure of the syntax...

help... anyone? or if im mistaken please point me in the right direction...

cheers,

ben

Examples:
Listen *:80 or Listen 80 or Listen 0.0.0.0:80
(listens on all IP's on port 80)

Listen 192.168.0.1:80
(listens on ip 192.168.0.1 using port 80)[/]

Listen 172.0.0.1:80
[i]local loopback using port 80


As for your having to type
//computername to access your site from another pc that is on the same LAN.
It's a matter of DNS, or hosts files (C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc)
