Forum OpenACS Development: Firewall?

5: Firewall? (response to 4)
Posted by Andrew Piskorski on
Jorge, if you can get to your OpenACS site via "http:/localhost:8000/" just fine but not via the external IP address, then you don't have an OpenACS problem. You have a system or network administration problem.

Most likely, you have some firewall turned on. I don't use Red Hat but I think recent Red Hat versions have shipped with a firewall turned on by default. This has definitely been discussed before, although you can probably find better links than those two if you look.
