Verify that the URL you type in the browser (see Info icon on main myWebMachine screen) is correct

myWebMachine is started, I use the correct URL but I still cannot connect from a browser from another machine?

Verify that the firewall or some antivirus software is not blocking the myWebMachine software. Make sure that such software allows the myWebMachine application to work with the network connection on your machine.

myWebMachine is running and I can access the machine via the browser in the local network but not when browsing from another location?

The machine in your local network must be accessible from outside. The IP address of your machine in the local network might be different from the outside IP address. When you Google for "my public IP address", Google will show this. In addition, the port myWebMachine is using might be blocked for outside access in your router. Verify your router settings that this port is not blocked or setup port forwarding when needed in the router. Finally, some ISP's will block outside/public access to machines connected to their network. If this is the case, myWebMachine WAN version will be needed for outside/public access
