I have just setup "XAMPP" and i have created a php page inside "C:\xampp\htdocs\test" folder. When i try to run the page using

"http://localhost/test/Helloworld.php" this it will work, where as

"http://16.n.n.n/test/Helloworld.php" or "http://16.n.n.n:port/test/Helloworld.php"

doesn't work, it will give network error. I have used(8080, 80, 8000, 443) ports to check this.

Please help me out.

Thanks in advance.
