I started a simple web server using:

python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8000 in directory = ~/Dropbox/Distro

My host name is "bob"

How do I access the website from my phone on the same network? Using the host name.

I'm trying stuff like http://bob:8000 but that's not working.

  • Try the internal IP address instead of "Bob".

  • @GabrielaGarcia I can get there with the IP address. I just want to use the host name.
