Issue Details

I have created a webVI by using G Web Development Software Web Module and I hosted it by using NI Web Server on my computer. I can view the web application on my browser but I cannot access the web application by using my smartphone or another computer. What might be causing this issue?


This issue usually is related to network setting. When we host a web application in NI Web Server, the web application is host locally. This means if we would like to access the web application, besides ensure the correct link is used, we need to ensure the devices are under similar local network. If the devices are not under the similar local network, port forwarding needs to be done.
