I'm running a website on my local Mac (Lion) machine using Python's SimpleHTTPServer. I can view the site at
http://127.0.0.1:8000 on my local machine.
My question is: why can't I view it on other machines connected to the same LAN?
I have taken the following steps:
- Enabled Web Sharing on my Mac, and temporarily turned off my firewall.
- Obtained my Mac's IP address via
ifconfig: it is
- Connected another machine to the same LAN.
- On that machine, pointed a browser at
But it doesn't work. I don't even get an HTTP response code: Chrome tells me the response is empty.
