Forum .LRN Q&A: Is there any default firewall?

Request notifications

Posted by Gonzalo López on
I have my server running but i can only access from localhost.

I checked all the system settings and it is not problem of my computer.

So the question is: is there any default firewall in dotlrn to forbid someone to connect from another computer.

I have to use my computer as a server.

Thanks again

HI Gonzalo,

No, there is no firewall. However if your server listens on localhost ("set address ..." line of your etc/config.tcl), you can access it only from localhost.

Yes. I set the address as to listen to all interfaces. But it works only some time before the server stops. The message I get from the shell is "Aborted"

Hi Gonzalo,

What's the content of the error.log when the server stops responding?

Posted by Gonzalo López on
Now it seems to work. If it happens again i'll let you know.

It still happens.

The error.log says:

and in the terminal:
