My XAMPP server is only responding to requets from the machine that's running it. I need it to repsond to requests from within a virtual PC as well as other machines on the network.

Listen 80

Is set in httpd.conf as apposed to Listen ipaddress:80, so I'm unsure why it won't serve pages to network users?

Edit: I should also mention that this worked with WAMP, so it's not to do with the hosts on the machines, they are the same.

Resolved by adding port 80 as an exception in Windows Firewall on the machine running XAMPP.

However, I'm still rather confused as to why WAMP worked.
