Hi there,
I have enabled the web sharing on preferences panel and set my computer name as Xserver01 or something but when I click the url it provided like "http://xserver01" on the panel, the safari says it can not find the server.
I just typed http://localhost and it works perfectly.
What should I do to fix this problem?
thank you so much :D

Learn about DNS. There are many things you could do, but it all depends on your set up.

thanks a lot. I thought osx would set up it automatically.

If your DNS server is your ISP I doubt they would have an entry for your desktop. .local may help but that's a short term fix. You should really learn about dns if you're serious.

Do an ifconfig and what your DNS server is.
