I have an ASP.Net website hosted on my Win8's localhost, the site seems to be running as expected on the desktop, but now i also want to test the site website on mobile device to check how it renders

Is there anyway i can access the website from my mobile device

My Mobile Device and Desktop Machine are connected to the same Network via Router.

Here are the details of my machine and router.

Machine has Win8 Pro Installed running IIS 8.0.9200.16384
Router is TP-Link Basic 150Mbps.
Device is Karbonn A15, Android - 4.0.4 (ICS)
Can anyone tell me how can i connect my mobile device to localhost website.

If both your desktop and phone are connected to the same WiFi (or any other local network), then use your desktop IP address assigned by the router (not localhost and not 127.0.0.1).

  1. Step 1: Connect your devices to the same network.
  2. Step 2: Find your local IP address if your computer (IPV4)
  3. Step 3: Get the port number. mykohlscharge
  4. Step 4: Open your mobile browser.

Usually, you can access the localhost of any computer through the loopback address 127.0. 0.1. By default, this IP address references a server running on the current device. In other words,when your computer requests the IP address 127.0.
