I am new to this one; I am currently developing an application over .Net in visual studio 2010. And I wish to show the ongoing work to my group partner... when I debug my project in visual studio it opens in the browser over something like:
As I wanted to show my partner who is over totally different network at this home I find out my IP address through
Run > cmd >ipconfig
And replaced the ‘localhost’ with my ip address and give that address to my partner to open it, the address is in this form, but he still can’t access it:
Now I am confused what’s wrong with it … can neone please help me... how I can temporary host my website over my PC and show it to others, I really need it for my project. Thank you! :)
Just to add: while searching through internet I found out that it could be because of windows firewall blocking the port 80. So I just configured my windows firewall to allow the TCP port 80 through the method specified here Open a port in Windows Firewall.But the problem is still there.
