Yesterday my team has fallen into a strange problem. On a Windows XP SP 2 machine, my assistant Ehsna wanted host an asp.net application so that other developers in our LAN can have a beta test on it.
Well he can access the application from his pc, but others couldnot!
"The page cannot be displayed" page was displayed!
Strange, as the same application has been hosted and tested previously in LAN, so whats the problem now?
Ehsan, spent few hours digging on this issue in internet but didn’t found any solution. He was wondered to find nobody in internet has fallen into this problem! And finally he solved in such a simple way, that we started laugh!
He just turned off our windows firewall and it started working in LAN ;)
