Webserver (WAMP + WordPress) access from LAN not working properly

i’ve started my first local webserver (vwware workstation) yesterday and ran into problems getting clients to connect to the wordpress-website.

I installed WAMP with default settings and added the wordpress-folder to the default www-folder and deactivated the firewall.
At first clients who tried to connect to got the “Forbidden: You don’t have permission to access / on this server” message.
Fortunately i stumbled across this thread post #8, where you have to edit the httpd-vhosts.conf file with Require all granted. This worked partially, client access is working with the IP and http://webserver, but it’s only the WAMP-Homepage. http://webserver/wordpress displays the website, but it’s text-only without proper graphics and format.

My question is:

A) How can i get the website displayed properly?

B) I have another setup without WAMP but Apache, MySQL, PHP, phpMyAdmin, WordPress installed separately.
Clients can’t connect to the website: ‘firefox can’t connect to the sercer localhost’.
When i try to connect from WAMP-WebserverA to WebserverB firefox displays WAMP-Homepage, which is localhost.
Is there a way to get rid of ‘localhost’ redirection?

Best regards!
