open a command window and type ipconfig and then depending on how your network is setup you\'ll get something like this:
Windows IP ConfigurationEthernet adapter Local Area Connection: Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.255.4 Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.255.1In my case since I\'m using a LAN I have a private ip address.
use the command: ifconfig
you\'ll get something like this:
$ ifconfigdc0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 inet 192.168.255.5 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.255.255 inet6 fe80::204:5aff:fe5f:e0cc%dc0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1 ether 00:04:5a:5f:e0:cc media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>) status: activeyou\'re looking for the part that says inet 192.168.255.5

If you cannot see your webpage make sure that your webserver is not only listening on the localhost (127.0.0.1).
Then if you are using a router/firewall you need to set fowarding rules/ firewall rules to let the request reach the computer.
If all this fail, you should contact your Internet Service Provider and ask them if they block port 80. If so change the port inside you webserver configuration.
To make it easier for everyone to reach your webserver you should create a dynamic dns from one of the several possible solution like dyndns, noip, etc...
