JumpStart # 36– Access IIS Express Localhost URL outside development machine on any other Remote device within same Network
In this short Jumpstart, I am going to show on how to access IIS Express (Visual Studio Development Server) Localhost URL outside the development machine on any other device which is connected to the same network as of Development machine. This would help us in saving lot of time in testing the application on different devices with different form factors. We often use emulators to test the behavior of our application, though this approach would give prospective results, one cannot trust emulators with 100% confidence (take an example of File upload). If there was a way to directly access the application (without hosting it, directly from development server) on the remote devise of interest, we can test and be confident about application usage.
