At home I have a simple network setup conatining 2 machines and 1 belkin router.
On one machine i have a site hosted with IIS7. Rather than the standard localhost/index.htm address I have added an entry in the HOSTS file pointing the local ip (127.0.0.1) to this domain - www.mysite.dev.
I can access the site with www.mysite.dev with no problem.
Ahat I would like to do is be able to view this site from my other machine on the network.
Initially I assumed this could be done with a url like so MACHINE-NAME/www.mysite.dev, but the connection always times out. But I can ping MACHINE-NAME without problems.
For testing purposes I have disabled the windows firewall on both machines but to no joy.
Like a typical web developer, my techy/network skills are pretty poor.
Can anyone see where I'm going wrong ??
