Setup for mobile testing

Is it possible to setup the IIS, so a DW site running locally on a machine can be accessed from a phone on the same network? Legend says that there is another forum post on this issue, but I am unable to find it.

Best regards,

If you are on the same network then you can try to load the website by ip address and port number.

Another option is to connect your phone to the usb port of your machine and configure network sharing / proxy.

Here are some guides:

There might be better options. I'm no expert in this :)

I tried to connect on my IP-address and port 80 on the setup in the attached picture (When I try to browse for a picture in this editor, it redirects me to /admin of doc.dynamicweb...). Without any luck though, as I am getting a 404. Changing the port to e.g. 444 will tell me it refused to connect.

To compare, when setting applications up like this using other CMS'es the same way, it is possible to access them on smartphones. Not on port 80 though, but setting the port to e.g. 444 will make these applications available on the local network. 

Maybe there are some special setup that I have to do for DW?

Best regards,
