Okay, so I have a web app that I want to test on a bunch of different devices. In order to do this easily I need to expose the application to the extranet so I can access it from anywhere.
My machine's intranet IP is 192.168.1.66, it's assigned manually by me from the router.
A DMZ is set up, so 192.168.1.66 should be completely exposed to the extranet.
The environment is a completely standard XAMPP installation under Windows. I haven't changed a thing, I've only added the web app to the docroot.
Httpd.conf has the default 'Listen 80' so this should not be an issue.
I've tried disabling my Windows firewall completely without any success.
I also have no idea if this is normal, but 'netstat -a' shows me multiple entries for port 80 as such:
TCP [::]:80 DESKTOP-DVN0SQB:0 LISTENING TCP 192.168.1.66:80 DESKTOP-DVN0SQB:0 LISTENING TCP 0.0.0.0:80 DESKTOP-DVN0SQB:0 LISTENING
Netstat also shows me an IP address which I do not recognize, 192.168.56.1. What baffles me is that I tried accessing it and weirdly enough, my app can be found on http://192.168.56.1/app. But this seems to be a local address because I cannot access it from any device on the intranet.
What gives? What is this 192.168.56.1 address? I remember seeing a similar address when I was playing with Vagrant a few days ago, could it be related? I no longer have any Vagrant VMs, I've destroyed all of them (in case it could be related).
And most importantly: why can't I access Apache from the intranet? Because it's definitely preventing me from accessing it from the extranet.
