How to access Wamp Server running on Windows 2008 from other computer?

The firewall rules on Windows 7 or Windows 2008 or later version may not allow you access to your web site running by WampServer from other computer. To fix this problem:

Step 1: Update httpd.conf to add this line
Allow from 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0 # for LAN
#or
Allow from all # for any computer in the world
Remember to restart Apache server after change the httpd.conf

Step 2: Check Windows Firewall.
  • Is the port 80 open?
  • Is the Apache Web Server (\wamp\bin\apache\Apache2.4.4\bin\httpd.exe allow to receive the request from other?
