Accessing MacBook local network from iPhone

Posted on


I have a development environment with grunt and BrowserSync which gives me the URL to access the webpage from other devices in the same network.

The URL works on the MacBook, but when I try to access it on my iPhone, it loads for 60 seconds and says:

Safari could not open page because the server stopped responding“.

The same happens when I try to access
(as the settings suggest) or directly.

Both devices are connected to the same WiFi-Network, I also disabled the Firewall on the Macbook, didn’t help.

Any ideas on what the problem could be?


Well, looks like restarting the router finally solved the problem.
