Develop on Windows 10, but not when offline

Posted 3 weeks ago by Snapey

At home, I'm happy developing on Mac

On the road, I have Windows 10 laptop. I have created a development environment using WSL, mostly following the steps here https://medium.com/jackabox/setting-up-wsl-on-windows-10-to-develop-with-php-laravel-60574a8612fd

So I have Ubuntu, Acrylic DNS and Valet all working to serve sites under a .test domain

All works well, except that if I'm off-line (no wifi, or in airplane mode) then its not possible to connect to my local sites. Anyone have any suggestions?

Confusingly, curl from the command line gets the site's home page so DNS is resolved and the web server is running. Its only Chrome and Edge that refuse to connect.
