i just installed wordpress and it works fine when browsing on the machine i have the installation. when i go to the page from another machine, using the ip address (http://my.ip.address/wordpress it will redirect to mymachinename.local/wordpress and i will get a page not found error. i've only seen one other post about this but the link to the solution was broken.
