Hi I have installed wordpress. When I try and access it locally \\localhost\wordpress there isn't any issue. However when I try to access it from a work station by changing "Localhost" to the server name( ie \\servername\\wordpress), I get a permissions problem.

Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /wordpress/ on this server

How do I fix this?

You need to manually update two database fields as explained here:

For WordPress:
You need to look inside the 'wp-options' table, and update the values in 'site_url' and 'home'.

Wordpress hardcodes the domain it was installed on in the db (vs. using a config file; or automatically detecting the value). Update the above and it should fix the issue. Make sure to use the exact domain name and make sure that domain is real/does resolve to your IP address.
