Hi everyone,

I recently started using the Abyss Web Server and set up a simple site using it. I can access my site fine through localhost and 127.0.0.1, but I can't access it through other devices on the same network, from which I entered both the hostname and host IP address. I haven't tried to access the site from outside the network yet. Does anyone know what the problem could be? Any help will be sincerely appreciated!

Most likely your windows firewall. You have to open inbound port 80, or another port if you're using an alternate port.
