I'm at a hotel right now and I need to do some dev with a Linux machine and a Windows machine. I need to access a web app that's running on the Linux box from the Windows for browser testing.
While both computers are on the same network (local IP addresses of 192.168.6.47 and 192.168.6.6 respectively), they can't see each other. All pings die, and attempting to access the app results in a 404 error. I assume certain protections on the network are preventing the machines from communicating.
Is there any clever way to get the two machines to chat? I'm open to any suggestions.
