Access from inside Router

    @nathanfiscaletti

    Hey, So i’m running my wordpress form my computer. But i can’t access my website from it’s normal address that other use, others use http://www.fiscalleti.com where as i use 192.168.0.6, However, i have the urls in wordpress set up so that they access http://www.fiscalleti.com instead of 192.168.0.6 so that others can see it, How do i see it too without using a proxy. I just want to be able to check for new comments and stuff.

    you probably need to add an entry to your computer’s hosts file to map your domain to your local IP address

    This tutorial looks like it shows you what you need:

    You sir, Are officially my best friend ever. I have actually tried that method before. But for some reason my host file was named host.bak and i wasn’t sure if it was supposed to be or not. So i left it how it was. Turns out it wasn’t supposed to have the .bak. That was the only problem. Thanks you rock. So for anyone that needs to know, or who sees this thread and doesn’t want to go through the trouble of going through the tutorial, open your hosts file located in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\ and add the line

    127.0.0.1 yourhostname.com

    and it will work. Again, thanks a ton cubecolour. You’re awesome.

    Cheers Nathan – its always nice to get a thumbs-up.

    I wasn’t 100% sure whether what I suggested would have worked as is a bit of an unusual problem, so I’m glad it did work out for you.
