    I need to setup a better dev/testing environment with another mac and I'm not quite sure how to do this. I want to be able to develop on one machine but allow another machine on the same hub to test the pages.

    Is it possible (well, I'm sure it is) to setup one machine with some kind of internal address that will make this possible. Certainly http://127.0.0.1/ will not work and I don't want to simply be connecting to the other machine...I'm hoping that I can be surfing to some address to access the pages.

    What do I do...what do I need?

    Thanks, v

    You should provide a little more information to how your network is setup.

    But from the sounds of it, you should just be able to type the IP address of the machine you wish to connect to into your browser.

    To determine your IP address
    From the Apple menu, select Location and then Network Preferences and In the Network Preference window, next to "Show:", select Network Status. Your network status will be displayed and your IP address listed.

    Woops, more about the network. It's very basic. My DSL plugs into an 8 port ethernet hub and three computers use that to get on the web.

    You know, I just didn't realize that I could simply type in http://10.0.0.x/ and it would do that. Ok, dumb question and problem solved.

    Thanks very much however!
