local website lost on changing the network


Recommended Posts


I am using vagrant to fire up my local server. 

My hosts file for firing the server using the mobile network is as below:


# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
#       localhost
#    ::1             localhost
#    mssplus.mcafee.com

#    franchisee.com        # Using Office WIFI    franchisee.com        # Using Mobile WIFI


and my corresponding Vagrantfile is :-


# -*- mode: ruby -*-
# vi: set ft=ruby :

Vagrant.configure("2") do |config|
    config.vm.box = "syone/lamp"

   # config.vm.network "public_network", ip: ""     # Using Office WIFI
    config.vm.network "public_network", ip: ""    # Using Mobile WIFI      
        #Vagrant v2.0+




With these settings I am able to access my website using chrome on windows. 

However if I change the settings for using the Office WIFI, i.e. comment out the lines for Mobile Wifi and un-comment those for the Office Wifi,  I get the following error.


This site can’t be reached

franchisee.com took too long to respond.


Checking the connection

Checking the proxy and the firewall

Running Windows Network Diagnostics


I am sure that previously I have made the switch numerous times and it worked. I wonder why I am unable to switch networks !? I have cleared the DNS Cache as well as the chrome browsing data but that did not help either.

Hoping that someone can shed some light on this.

Thanks all !
