I have a network with multiple computers (wireless, if that matters), and I am trying to set up XAMPP on one of the computers and access it on another one (both are using Ubuntu 16.04). I have XAMPP installed on the one I'd like to use as a server, and then I access it through SSH with X11 server clearance/permission:
ssh -X User@MyComputer
I then open a firefox window and enter the address http://localhost, and firefox says there's a problem loading page, unable to connect. I also notice that the firefox window that I have open remotely mimics the settings and browsing history of my local computer. Why is the remote instance of the browser mimicking my local instance? More importantly, how can I access the localhost page of my remote computer via SSH, if it's possible?
