How to access to server hosted locally on computer from another device in local network? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created new WebAPI project in Visual Studio 2013. I can access to the site through localhost on my computer. Now, I want to test my WebAPI in my WindowsPhone app. The problem is: I can't connect to this IIS server created by Visual Studio from other device.

    When I click "run" in Visual Studio, it opens "http://localhost:8332/" in Internet Explorer. So the port is 8332.

    When I try to open it on other computer or phone that use the same local network I use this adress: "". It doesn't work. Cannot open website. The ip adress is correct, I found it in ipconfig.

    "ping" works OK on my laptop, it isn't networks blame.

    I also checked my computers ports using TCPView app. Looks like this:

    What's wrong?
