I am trying to set up an Ad Hoc network between my PC running Vista and my Macbook running Leopard. It's not just the Ad Hoc network though. I have Visual Studio Developer Express and SQL Studio Express running on the PC. When I launch a web service on localhost from Visual Studio, I want the Mac to be able to access the web service on my pc (localhost). I am accessing the web service on the mac through the iphone simulator in xcode.
Basically, I am trying to access my Vista localhost web service from the iphone simulator in xCode on my mac over an ad hoc wireless network.
I tried setting up the ad hoc wireless network, but I can't even access the web service in Firefox on the mac using : http://%28ipadress%29%3A%28port%29/webservice.asmx
At this point the Mac has not even shown up in my network on the PC.
Can anyone point me in the right direction or let me know if this is even possible? Do I have to disable firewalls possibly?
