Ok after further playing around, I have now added it to the firewall in windows and can now see it. But the localhost is Forbidden.
This is the same as if I change localhost to the ip address on the actual computer. So Now I'm pretty certian it's a wamp thing.
Ok figured it out.
For anyone in the future that has this problem:
In wamp open your httpd.conf file.
Find the line that says <Directory "c:/wamp/www"> (Note your path may be different depending on your localhost path.)
A few lines below this you will see these lines:
Deny from all
Allow from 127.0.0.1
Change Deny from all to Allow from All
and comment out (#) the Allow from 127.0.0.1 line
ok so thanks for the help, though this wasn't crystal clear to me as there were two instances of that three line block. Here's is a cut and paste of the Altered block with a little extra cut from the surrounding area just to be sure you are addressing the right instance
# Controls who can get stuff from this server.
# onlineoffline tag - don't remove
Deny from all
Allow from all
# DirectoryIndex: sets the file that Apache will serve if a directory
# is requested.
DirectoryIndex index.php index.php3 index.html index.htm
the bold line is the line I changed to get things working. it use to read Allow from 127.0.0.1
Lastly, the file location is going to be a veriation of what H1 suggested....or so i thought. my httpd.conf file was actually found here [drive]:\wamp\bin\apache\apache2.2.22\conf
Thanks once again for the help though, i would have never got this far without the help
I'm using Xampp. Adding allow from all to my httpd.conf has no effect. Anyone? Thanks
bikeman01, are you sure you've modified the #onlineoffline tag section of the configuration file?
Have you turned off your software firewall completely on your computer?
