Running my control page from a web browser at home

on my Mac I open the URL

http://127.0.0.1:8176/controlpage?name=mypagename

which is my CP. It works.

If open a browser on my phone and try to connect to that the browser fails to open anything.

What do I need to do to access my control page from other devices on the same network as my Mac?

Hi trevorsmith, This should be as simple as changing 127.0.0.1 to the actual IP address of your Mac... Your Mac's local IP can be found in a number of places, but System Preferences > Network is usually quick and easy. Thx!
