Use LiveEdit on another computer?

I am using PHP Storm 6 on a Mac and was wondering if there is any way to use a Windows 7 based laptop next to it to preview my work via LiveEdit.
I have a Virtual Host configured on the Mac (as follows) and connect to it via http://somehost.dev -

NameVirtualHost 127.0.0.1
<VirtualHost *:80>
  ServerName somehost.dev
  DocumentRoot "/Users/benjaminmcmahan/PhpstormProjects/TEVFDDev/htdocs/"
  <Directory "/Users/benjaminmcmahan/PhpstormProjects/TEVFDDev/htdocs/">
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Includes ExecCGI
    AddType text/shtml .shtml
    AddOutputFilter INCLUDES .shtml
    AllowOverride All
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
  </Directory>
</VirtualHost>

I have the Chrome JetBrains IDE extension installed on the Mac and Live Edit works fine. I noticed that there is the option to set an IP address and port for the extension to use, which I would think means that it would be possible to listen for LiveEdit from another machine. The IP address of the Mac is 192.168.2 - using this IP address I am able to view

somehost.dev
on the Windows machine and set the Windows machine's JetBrains IDE IP to 192.168.1.2. However, LiveEdit does not do anything on this machine.
Is it possible to set up such a configuration?

Also, when I upgraded to PHPStorm 6, LiveEdit disappeared from the View menu. I downloaded it from the Plugin repository and it's working again. Is the improved LiveEdit that is mentioned for PHPStorm 6 the same one in the repository?

Thanks!

Yes. LiveEdit bundled with WebStorm equals to repository version (only for the same version of PhStorm: WebStorm 6 equals to PhpStorm 6).

What is the status of JB icon in Google Chrome – enabled or disabled (grayed out)? What is tooltip value?

Looks like I got it working - IP set to the same as in the original post, selected Icognito Mode. Not sure if setting Icognito Mode made it work or if that was just a coincidence, the plugin crashed and it worked after being restarted.
Sweet!
