Visual Studio development server listen interfaces

    Hi,

    Is it possible to tell the integrated Visual Studio development web
    server (used, for example, for debugging web services) to listen on
    other network interfaces than localhost?

    I develop my client application on another machine and would like to
    test the service from there, unfortunately since the computer on which
    I'm developing my web service only listens on localhost, the client
    can't connect.

    Luc
    PS:I'm asking this because I would like to avoid installing IIS for the
    time being :)

    What happens if you change your hosts file so that "localhost" goes to the
    IP that you want to develop/listen on?

    I use localhost for other things, so that's not really a solution,
    plus, I'm really not sure that it's a clean way to resolve the problem
    :)

    Thanks still
