I have an xampp setup for development. The host system is Win 8. This has been working fine for ages.
I am letting other people connect to this development web-server via my computer name, e.g.
I was also able to connect as expected when setting this up initially. But since this morning it is no longer working.
I can not connect my local browser to the local webserver using the above. I can connect using
I can ping 'devmachine' from itself, and can connect to it on http (:80)
I have turned off firewalls, and 'security' software, but since the webserver appears to remote users, I am a bit puzzled.
I have tried different browsers (Firefox, Safari, Chrome) with the same results.
I have edited the hosts file, but I don't think this is the problem, since I can connect to port 80.
Any clues would be greatly appreciated.
