Wamp blocked on LAN

My Wamp was working fine on my XP machine until I created a LAN between it and a Vista home basic machine changing only the Vista commands. The LAN works as does my internet access but my websites under Wamp now don't show up even though the Wamp tray icon shows it's working fine.

Since the changes blocking WAMP were made on Vista I need another change in Vista or is there a change to make in Wamp? I don't want to go back to no LAN if possible.

localhost will only be available the computer that has WAMP installed.

To access WAMP from another computer on your network you need to use the computers LAN IP address that has wamp installed on it. for example []

You can of course edit your others computers hosts file and change localhost

your computers IP address here localhost

Now localhost will work as normal on your other computers.
