    Ok, I am at wit's end. Begging for help or advice. I am running Windows XP SP3 IIS Server. I used EasyPHP's latest version to date to install the necessary software. I created a database via EasyPHP and have installed wordpress correctly. When I open up the browser, I am able to pull up WordPress when I type in "localhost" or "127.0.0.1" but when I use another computer to go to the website http://www.mysite.net (replacing mysite with the true address), Firefox tells me

    Connection Interrupted
    The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading
    The network link was interrupted while negotiating a connection. Please try again.

    What am I missing? I am a n00b when it comes to these things, but I know I am on the verge of getting this to work. Thanks for any advice.

    What do I have to have the WordPress settings be at with regard to the Website settings and Website Location? I used to have the c:/inetpub/www folder be the location where I would copy my html files and it would display on the website. Now I'm using the EasyPHP/www folder, which allows me to pull it up on localhost. However, when I copy the files over to the inetpub folder, it's not showing up on the website.
