On Windows 7 everything works smoothly, but on Windows XP machine I get Unable to connect.

Listen 1231

NameVirtualHost *:1231

<VirtualHost *:1231>
    ServerAdmin admin@localhost
    ServerName localhost
    DocumentRoot "C:\wamp\www\test\public"

I tried disabling Firewall, but nothing. Hope someone will help. Thanks.

EDIT: I am typing localhost:1231 in a Browser

I did restarted server. I am not on a virtual machine.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

What URL are you using to connect? Did you restart the server? Are you 100% sure the firewall is disabled? Are you on a virtual machine with this? – Pekka 웃 Oct 7 '11 at 20:37
Are you 100% sure the server is running? Is the service showing as "Running" in the services list? – Pekka 웃 Oct 7 '11 at 20:40
I am 100% sure that I did disabled the firewall. And service is running. – DexyOnline Oct 7 '11 at 20:41
