Ok Still stuck on this.
I currently have a Linux machine and my windows machine on a local network. The linux machine will be going to a datacenter sometime in the future but for now I just want to be able to access a single website on it from my windows machine.
I'm probably doing this wrong but I added a new site in ISPConfig
Now, im stuck at trying to work out how on my windows machine to access this website.
If I enter http://192.168.123.155
in IE on the windows machine i get a sharedIP " This IP address is shared. For access to the web site which you look for, enter its address instead of its IP." warning.
I know that if I enter http://dev.softwarediy.com
then it will get resolved by my ISP rather than the Linux box and end up as a server not found error.
If I add
to my windows hosts then it will just do the IP address again.
I understand that ISPConfig uses VirtualHosts to get multiple domains on a single IP using domain names.
So, I think it boils down to:
Is there any way to connect to a newly created site on the local ISPConfig server from my windows XP machine on the local network?
Im confused at how to do it.
