HI - I have my Codeigniter / PHP dev. machine in one room where I can of course test just using "localhost". However, I have a laptop in another room, where I would like to also be able to do occaisional development from without uploading the files to that local machine. I have mapped a drive to the remote machine and I can see the files. I Want to be able to point my laptop browser at the remote system and see the render files on my laptop.

Any ideas how I do that ?

Many thanks !

1. On the dev machine, make sure the firewall allows inbound connections to port 80.
With Windows, it might have asked you already, but look for the firewall settings and (if there isn't a rule) add one.

2. On the dev machine, grab the name of the machine and make sure your site is set up to work for that name.
With Apache, the main configuration (or virtualhost if you're using that) needs either the ServerName to be the machine name or add a ServerAlias for it. And restart it.

3. On the laptop, try http://themachinename/.

You can just type the local ip address of the server into your browser's address bar. This is assuming you're connect to the same local network at the server.

Amongst a bunch of other things that your assuming are setup properly.
