Any way to browse to my Q&E Server from another PC?

Note: I tried browsing to 127.0.0.1 and I get : Unable to connect to server at 127.0.0.1...

127.0.0.1 is a local IP address so you cannot use that on another computer.

You should either use the computer's Internet IP address (the IP address of your Router) or your local network's IP address (usually something like 192.0.168.xxx).

I appreciate the time and efforts of "admin" to answer my question, I managed to figure this out just this morning and was about to append my request with that good news....

It is important to realize (for a local server (on your home network)) that a web page or site with some content is referenced such as: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/mypage where mypage is an alias for the path to the content as defined on the server...

If this seems obvious to those with more experience, it wasn't to me...
If it is clear as mud to others, let me know and I'll try to help... Very Happy
