There are 2 variations on this issue. The oddest part is the localhost. I didn't install xampp but used what was already on my mac. Notable detail: I can see the mac website (for testing purposes) on the nearest Windows xp. But at work the Windows 7 gives it a time out message. However, I have xampp on that Windows 7 and the mac can see it's temporary website just fine. Firewall or router issue? Any ideas? The second, not at all odd, is getting the PC to see the mac on the network. I have sporadically gotten it to work on the XP, but it tends to break. This is inconvenient, since I can't afford a file sharing service and free ones like google drive aren't really giving enough space (scan and such can be big). As for the work PC, I've never gotten that to work at all. The Mac can usually get in through the 'go to server' on finder, but it would be nice if it was a 2 way street. Also of note: The work PC is using Windows Home Premium, (which had some ridiculous limitations compared to actual business version.) I believe it may have started live as an actual 'home' computer.
