Subject [users@httpd] hitting apache across home network with hosts file
Date Thu, 28 Jan 2010 19:15:13 GMT
In the past I just had one machine.  I ran apache on it.  I modified the
hosts file to point aliases to the local box. mysite_com So in my browser, I could type in: mysite_com
(underscore instead of dot) and bring up the site. Now I have a new box
running windows 7 that will be the machine I use for dev.  I have assigned
the server a static Ip of and the computer name "server".

I have modified the conf file to listen to ip I have tried to
modify the hosts file on the win 7 machine with the following different
things: server   mysite_com \\server   mysite_com   mysite_com
All of these fail to bring up the site.  I can remote desktop to the machine
via its ip or name. What am I doing wrong?
