I am running Apache2.2 and a WAMP stack on XP. I have two XP computers on my home LAN. I have setup a demo website on one of the XP machines (the server machine), and I want to be able to view it on another XP machine (the client machine) - however when I attempt to do so, the browser on the client machine times out after a while and reports that the browser is not available or too busy.
I am able to ping the server machine from the client machine, and receive ACKs (no data lost). I am also able to print documents from the client machine, onto the printer connected to the server machine, so networking is not the issue here.
On the server, I can access the website by typing: http://localhost/thesite.php
On the client, I type a similar url, but with localhost replaced by the IP address of the server machine (same address used in the ping test).
Anyone knows what may be set incorrectly? - I strongly suspect Apache.
