How can I make server public in local wifi environment

I have two computers in the same WIFI home, how did I configure the server to make it local public which allow another computer to browser the JIRA server running on the other laptop?

That's a networking question, not a JIRA one, but...

JIRA runs as a web service, so it's "listening" for connections on an ip address and port.  All you need to do is point another computer at that ip:port combination.  So if computer running JIRA is and it's on port 8080, then the other computer can use JIRA by going to

Anything more than that is very much a network question (using names instead of addresses, static ip addresses, making it available outside the network etc)

The one thing that could bite you on the simple answer is security - a lot of computers will be firewalled by default, so you may need to open up port 8080 on the firewall on the JIRA box.
