    If you're trying to test out your application using a device that isn't on your local network, it likely wouldn't work because of multiple firewalls and possibly NAT devices in the way (e.g. a proxy server or a router).

    You could instead sign up for a free web hosting account provided by one of our partners - this way, you could publish your application to the web and then access it for testing from anywhere.

    Take a look at the web hosting offers (completely free through the Beta period) by clicking the dropdown under Publish (in the Ribbon) and choosing "Find Web Hosting..."

     In order to do this, you'd have to know the IP address of the machine that is running WebMatrix. Generally, you can find the IP address of your machine by running this on a command line (Start menu > Run > "cmd"):

     ipconfig

     

     (Process is something like this: http://www.ehow.com/how_2091470_computer-ip-address-windows.html )

     

    Do note that you'd still have to make sure that no firewall rules prevent access to the machine and that WebMatrix is running in admin mode.

    You can run any program in admin mode (as an administrator) by holding down the SHIFT key while right-clicking it in the Start menu, then choosing "Run as Administrator".
