I've been facing this issue for quite a long time now, and couldn't figure out its logic. So let me explain what I have:

I have Xampp installed on a Linux Desktop PC which is connected to two local networks at the same time: The first one doesn't go out to the internet, but the second one does and is connected via Wifi.

My problem is that I can't access Xampp whith an IP address in the 192.168.1.X range when I'm connected to the 2nd network.

Keep in mind that's range is from to

However, I can access Xampp just fine when I put on an IP address in the 192.168.0.X, 192.168.2.X or 192.168.3.X ranges.

I know it probably has something to do with the 192.168.1.X range on the first local net. Is there any explanation to this? Thanks!
