i have two laptops both with xampp installed on them. is it possible for me to view the localhost of another using another with them connected via crossover?
i do this as a starting block for what i want to do which is to have a machine that will provide services to other machines that are on a network. i am starting with two machines because that is all i have access to.

if its possible to do what i want please tell me every step as i donot know much (i know nothing really) about networking. and NO, this is not an assignment

You should be able to view the local server of another computer on your network using it's network IP address.

You can find this on Windows via the command prompt using ipconfig -all.

If you're using multiple vhosts, you'll need to update the hosts file on the remote (non-hosting) machine.
