Unable to connect to site from another computer

Hi there

I have a Joomla site I have created on a web server with Wamp installed. I can access site from web server by going to www.sitename.co.uk.

However, I cannot access the site from computer. I have so far done the following:

- In httpd-vhosts.conf, changed Require Local to Require all granted
- allowed Apache HTTP Server through firewall
- created entry in hosts file on another so that I can access site from another computer (entry is ipaddress sitename.co.uk)

But I still can't access site from another computer. I can ping the ip address and sitename.

Is there anything else I need to configure to make this work?

Do you get reply when you ping the server name from the PC not running WAMPServer. If so what does it say.

Can you show us your httpd-vhost.conf file please
