Access to local Hyper-VM via WLAN switch

Zimmermann Mathias 1 Reputation point

Hi all. May someone can help me:

I have a local Hyper-V environment on my computer. This is connected to my host operating system (i.e. my PC) via a virtual switch. In the Hyper-V runs a web server, which I now want to address externally.

From my local PC this is possible directly, the name of the Hyper-V is resolved and I can address the web server from my PC. Now the requirement:

I want to be able to access this web server from my cell phone as well. For this I bought a small WLAN switch, which connects my PC and the cell phone. What do I have to set up now and where, so that I can access the web server from the cell phone via local WLAN? Do I need a network bridge, routing or anything else?

It would be great if someone could help me :-) Many thanks and greetings from Switzerland, Mathias

    In order for this to happen you would need to port forward (port 80) on your NAT router to the private address (virtual machine) of your web server. With a cell phone the NAT is built into the phone so most users would not have access to the built-in NAT device.
