Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to need help -- iptables, port forwarding, openacs/aolserver
David's suggestion to "set ForceHostP 0" seems to have mostly done the trick. Now, with "set hostname 192.168.32.2" or "set hosthame myStaticAddress and "set address 192.168.32.2", I can see the openacs web site from my internal network using either htttp://192.168.32.2:8000 or http://internalDNSname:8000. I can also see the login page externally by typing http://myStaticAddress. The problem now is that after I type a name and password on the login page, I can't see subsequent pages, getting "The page cannot be displayed" messages. I double checked my firewall settings by deleting all chains and setting all policies to ACCEPT.
I really appreciate the response so far. Any more ideas?
