Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to why cannot see the pages outside of my machine?
Check that the commands
hostname grep `hostname` /etc/hosts nslookup `hostname`
all return expected and consistent information on your own machine. Then use nslookup on the other machines to look up
mymachine.mydomain.com (if that is the result of the hostname command on the OpenACS server machine!). I suspect that the other machines cannot convert mymachine.mydomain.com (or whatever it really is) into an IP address using
nslookup>, because you do not have DNS correctly set up for that machine.
If you are unable to set up DNS and are in a 'experimental' mood, you might find that putting an entry something like:
18.104.22.168 mymachine.mydomain.com mymachine
into /etc/hosts will act as a temporary workaround (replace 22.214.171.124 with the actual IP address of the OpenACS server concerned!).
Documentation Team: Is this in the docs and/or the FAQ? It seems like it ought to be....?
