    Question viewing page on another pc


    hi...

    Can I make somebody else view my webpage, that i made in asp-mysql on anohter machine? I tried to give my ip address to another person to view my page. But it doesnt work. i tried as : http:\\ip-address\logindb.asp?

    To run ASP on my machine i had to change my port for localhost to 8888 from the original. Before changing it to 8888 it was giving 'in use...' error. I got asp functioning when i changes my port to 8888. Now when i want to make others view my page can I do it? If yes, then i was wondering why would we need space to host a website (small scall). I can always make my machine as the host machine and no need to buy space and all?

    can any one suggest me?

    do i need to make any changes to my IIS setting for any 2nd person to view my login page?

    thanks in advance.

    Since you changed the port, you must specify it. The default would be 80 if not specified. Therefore:
    http://yourMachineNameOrIPAddres:8888/logindb.asp
