How do I get people in my office to access the localhost instance of JIRA Service Desk?

I have JIRA Service Desk running off my computer and I am in an office network. I would like my coworkers to be able to access the JIRA Service Desk to evaluate it. How do I go about setting it up? Thank you.

If they are on the same network they can replace 'localhost' with your IP address. If that doesn't work there is a firewall or switch between them and you.

Thank you. That worked.

You don't - localhost always points to "this current machine".

You need to get them to access your computer via its IP address or host name on your network - JIRA usually runs on port 8080, so it'll be something like http://yourcomputer:8080
