I installed Screwturn Wiki using WebMatrix 2 and this tutorial: Installing ScrewTurn Wiki using WebMatrix, Now I have Screwturn Wiki running on my machine at http://localhost:4422/Default.aspx but have no idea how to allow other users on our network to access the wiki. I read that they may need to use my ip address instead of localhost (I Understand localhost is specific to the machine itself) but a direct replacement in the url doesn't seem to work.

http://(ip address):4422/Default.aspx

How can I get other machines to access screwturn as it is installed to my machine?

they need to access it via IP address, use ipconfig to determinate your IP address and other users will be able to use that in order to access your application

Perhapps I don't understand how they need to use it specifically then. I mentioned that I had them try using my ip address as it is returned from ipconfig in the url but it didn't work. Is it just my ip address/Default.aspx? –  Fuzz Evans Oct 17 '12 at 20:02
    
no, it's http : //_IP_ADDRESS_:4422/Default.aspx (no spaces) –  alexus Oct 17 '12 at 20:14
