  • Development site web access

    How can I allow web access to my development on the web as http://[MYIPADDRESS]:8081 ?

    The site works fine as  http://localhost:8081 but I need to show my client what I am doing.

    I have tried all sorts of advice on Google but nothing I have tried works.

    I have tried installing and configuring the IIS Management but this ended up with a message telling me that port 8081 was already in use when I tried access to localhost:8081 , even though I can still can't access the development on the web. I ended up having to do a full system restore just to get access back to the development site on my own computer.

    In short, I need to know how to allow access to my development site on my computer via the web.

    A simple step-by-step procedure would really be appreciated.
