asked for the domain and server names and I didn't know what to answer, so I put "localhost",
which turned out to be a good guess.  So, I am using http://localhost/ to connect to the Apache
HTTP server.  Now, I need to connect to the server from a remote machine.  What http address
should I use ?

To access apache installation inside your LAN, just type the IP of the
computer that has apache running from another computer into the address
bar of your browser.  find your internal IP by typing ipconfig at a
command line of the computer running apache.
