I'm trying set up virtual host test.com on my LAN. I set it up on my laptop and it's working well but problem is when the others want to browse, it doesn't work!

Note: my laptop has ad-hoc wireless and others use it to connect to internet. I have set up hosts file setting and apache setting and are working well. Now what else should I do?

Setting up an entry in your local /etc/hosts file does not affect other machines on your network, even if they're routed through your computer.
