I have installed XAMPP on Windows 7, but when I try to access the server with the LAN IP from another PC connected to the same network, the website does not show up, instead throws an error. When I ran the web server on my android device with kWS, it works on LAN (I cant use it as is CPU intensive). What can be the cause and how to fix it (XAMPP) ?
