ive installed the wamp5 everything is working fine although id like to share my webpage with my friends now and i dont know what address to give them obviously not [localhost] so im scratching my head on this one im a bit new to this so any help would be appreciative

i fixed this problem a few mins after posting
so ill leave the question and answer here for anyone else wondering the same thing.
a couple of do's and dont's
Dont use to determine your ip address
Do use ipconfig (start run cmd+enter in the cmd console type ipconfig)
and just type your ip address followed by port 80 like this
and your friends will see it fine

the only problem i seem to be having now is my webpages wont load unless i use a proxy i thought it would be to do with iis but i started/stopped the service and stopped apache neither helped so if anyone can clear that up that would be great other that that it looks like ill be using a proxy until i find out sad smiley other than that i have found this software great thus far keep up the great work guys
