I'm using WampServer on Windows 7 and while it works locally (using localhost), for some reason access to it from other devices using my PC's local IP, which is fixed ( is not working anymore. It used to work, but I don't remember changing any configuration. I did change my router for a new one, so maybe the router is somehow preventing Apache from working properly between machines in the network, but I don't know what to change in its configuration. It's a ZTE ZXHN H218N router.

I'm not interested in connecting to the Apache server from outside my LAN, only from inside, from machines other than the server PC.

I've PINGed the server PC from a tablet (from Android Terminal Emulator) connected by WiFi to the same router, and I do get a response, but then, I can't access the Apache server from the browser using

In my httpd.conf file I have: Listen 81 Listen 88 Listen 89

Note there is no IP in any of the Listen statements, just the ports, so any machines in my LAN should be able to access it.

Using localhost:81, localhost:88 and localhost:89 from my server PC works (I get all three websites), so Apache is properly configured. The problem is I can't access those test sites from other devices in my LAN using, and

Any ideas on how to access my Apache server from other devices in the LAN?

  • You said you got a new router. Are you sure your IP address has not changed? Perhaps you were doing Static DHCP in your old router, but not any more?

  • My new router has the same default gateway as the old one ( Both routers work with automatic DHCP, but my PC has its IP manually set in Windows ( Internet browsing and even SMB folder sharing work fine in all computers. It's only Apache/WampServer the one which has issues. It used to work with my old router, though.

  • Can you access Wamp from your PC using that IP?

I had the same problem. Yesterday I could connect fine, then today suddenly I couldn't.

Then I turned off µTorrent and that solved the problem.
