Opening Dreamweaver site on iPad

Apr 16, 2012 10:44 PM

Can anyone explain if it is possible to view my local dreamweaver site on my LAN on my iPad without having to upload it.  I tried setting up a virtual host in mamp and also trying to figure this out using Shadow.  If anyone can explain it please do soo in as if you were talking to a 5 year old ;-).

    Do you get errors or anything?

    I use wamp (Windows here) and when it's running any device (tablets,phone,laptops,TV etc.) on the LAN can view sites hosted on my PC by browsing my LAN IP address. You can setup a name to acces the site, for example on my lan "http://localserver/" but lets start off slow.

    Without know more about your setup that's all I can say right now.

    Viewing on the iPad via localhost would be best done via Shadow if you do not wish to upload to a live server.


    Unfortunately the shadow app for the iPad/Pod/Phone that supports localhost connections is still 'stuck' in the Apple apps approval process but it should hopefully be available by the end of this week. Don't forget also to install the latest release of the Shadow build and the app for Chrome otherwise it will not work.


    The latest build is version 2 and was released last week -
