Can I connect to the WebDev.WebServer.exe remotely? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm new to VS.NET.  I have no problem to run or test my code via the web server launched by VS.NET when I click RUN.  However, I tried many ways to do the same thing from a remote computer (within a LAN).  I've tried to the random port or 8080 but either of them works.  I opened those two ports on my norton firewall.  It doesn't help at all.   The remote computer has no problem to see the aspx pages on 8080 via IIS  (on WinXP)  or the pages on 8080 via Tomcat (JSP program).  The IE on remote computer seems to be nothing happened after I enter the URL.


    I knew the WebDev.WebServer.exe is for development purpose.  But I really want to know that is it the limit of WebDev.WebServer.exe to connect from a remote computer?  if it's not, please help me....
