Accessing my local WordPress from another location (1 post)

    I am sitting in my office right now, and running MAMP to host my local WordPress site for development. What I am wondering is how do I access this site from another device on the SAME network?

    So far I can pull up the home page, but any link will lead to http://localhost:8888/...

    Since the 'server' isn't on that device, I just get a dead page. How do I set up my 'host computer' to allow other devices to connect to it?

    EDIT: I have tried changing the address of my wordpress in the settings from 127.0.0.1 to my internal IP (192.x.x.x), but is there a way I can set it up so that I don't have to change this again say I move to another location?
