Apache – How to access site running apache server over lan without internet connection

apacheeasyphplocalhost

I am running a server on Windows XP SP2 computer using EasyPhp. Lets call it computer_1.
The ip address of computer is 192.168.1.2

Now I have another computer ( computer_2) on the lan with ip address 192.168.1.3

I want to access the site on computer_1 from computer_2.

comupter_2 can ping computer_1 (ping 192.168.1.2 works)

But when I type http://192.168.1.2 in the browser of computer_2, nothing happens.

I want to access the site on comupter_1 from computer_2.

In your httpd.conf make sure you have:
