That is because WampServer is primarily a developers tool

It comes configured in a way to protect the new developer from attempted hacks from the internet.

If you do a search on this site, or a Google search you will see many articles on how to change the configuration.

But you should take great care doing this as if you do it badly you run the risk of allowing hackers into your system.
Please read the sticky posts 'Please read and answer before asking a question' and 'All you need to know about DampSDampServer 3' before attempting this
