problem hosts file
I am hosting a weberver on a windows 7 pc.
It's ip address: 192.168.0.100
Mijn domainname is: (example) www.mysite.nl
If i type from another pc on my local network in the url of the browser: www.mysite.nl, he can not find the indexpage of the webserver
I have to type my local ip address from the pc where the server is running from to view my index page: 192.168.0.100 (http://192.168.0.100)
Only then he shows me the indexpage
I was looking to the hosts file in system32/drivers/etc/hosts, and i added the last rule : 192.168.0.100 www.mysite.nl
My host file looks like this:
# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
# 127.0.0.1 localhost
# ::1 localhost
Computer reboot, but still when i type the address: www.mysite.nl ; he says: unable to connect
What have i done wrong?
Why is this still not working?
He knows when i visit www.mysite.nl, he has to connect to 192.168.0.100
But it doesn't work
Can someone help me with that problem?
