This is the situation:
- Computer running Windows XP
- Running Apache
- LAN: Internet connection
- WLAN (Wi-Fi): Hotspot with Connectify software (http://www.connectify.me/), FREE version
- iPhone 3G connected to computers WLAN to share computer internet connection
So far, the internet connection (browsing the internet) is working fine. When i use the computers IP address (for example: http://192.0.2.1/examplefolder/) to access the server that is running on the computer it cannot connect on the iPhone (timeout). When SOMEBODY else (i don't have two computers) do the same on another computer it is working fine and you see a webpage.
Can somebody explain why it is not working via the hotspot, i know already that it has something to do with the hotspot connection because my computer is visible thru the internet. But why, can anybody explain that to me? Is there a solution to this?
I use this configuration to test websites on an iPhone. I don't have a 3G internet connection available on the iPhone so i want to do it this way.
