    What is the App name you're using?

    Very interesting the forum did that actually. Especially since I know this site uses IIS.

    I know right? It translated localhost to IIS.

    I'm not sure if I want to say the app name publicly, because those extra features only accessible from localhost can be unlocked to any remote LAN or WAN PC by paying for them, so I don't wanna give any clues to any potential developer to prevent what I'm actually doing.

    If it is that important to you I can send you a PM but I don't think knowing which app is it makes any difference on my question, sorry.

    It's hard for me to know exactly what you're trying to do without knowing what software you're using and why it's limiting another LAN connected PC. Feel free to send me a PM if you want.

    Again though, port forwarding is ONLY used for external WAN connections, not internal. I don't know what you have running there that makes you think opening a port to the world makes your App work better in the local environment.

    Being very cryptic doesn't help matters...

    Sorry for being cryptic. I did not open any port, I just ran a SSH server on the same machine the service is, then on my another LAN PC I ran:

    ssh -L SERVICE_PORT:SERVICE_PC_IP:SERVICE_PORT USER@SERVICE_PC_IP

    So, instead of entering the service web server from my other LAN PC with:

    http://192.168.1.10:PORT (limited settings)

    I can enter with

    http://localhost:PORT (no limited settings)

    The app itself I a very simple one that runs as a Windows service and exposes a web server for administration of the same app. If entered from another PC rather than localhost, options are only in read-mode, and I want to be able to access the admin settings from any PC on the LAN, not just the same machine where the service is running.

    Well, the devil is in the details....


    Is it XAMPP? Wamperver?

    On its face, perhaps you need to add certain IPtables to the server so that another PC has the same rights?

    I thought IPtables was just a linux thing? Could you please elaborate?

    It is, but you're apparently using a Secure Shell (SSH) so I thought perhaps your server is Linux.
