Give access to PDM server hosted on a local PC

I set up the PDM standard server on my pc and successfully created the vault. My question is how can my colleague reach the server. This may be more of a networking issue than PDM. But, I wanted to know if anybody knew. I think I need to open some ports and modify the host file. But, looking for some guide. 




Running solidworks 2019 sp4.


Vault is set up. 


I can add users in the administration panel. 




User downloaded the pdm client and when he tries to add the server, it errors out saying server not found. 




This is needed only for intranet users only. 




Thanks in advance.
