Have you deactivated your windows firewall?

The computer in question is running windows server 2000. As far as I can tell, it doesn't even have a firewall built into it. –  watchwood Sep 4 '09 at 14:35

Seems like your webserver is only listening on the loopback interface. You may try a left-click on the wamp icon and choose put online.

You should just be able to type the IP and the port you've used (defauly 80 for WAMP iirc).


Is the server able to be accessed locally? Is it online? Is your firewall blocking it (shouldn't be blocking port 80 but check anyway)

I've hit the button to turn it online, and it does work from my local computer. Firewall doesn't even seem to exist. (windows server 2000)

You should add comments, or update your question instead of providing additional detail with answers. –  Zoredache Sep 4 '09 at 16:17

I noted that turning off skype before running, magically solve this issue. If you are not using skype think about other apps that could be using same range ports.

Can you provide any more details, like what port apache is listening on? Look in the http.conf file. Are you just using the IP, or do you have a DNS set up? Can you ping the computer with WAMP from other computers on your network?
