I am doing a poor man’s equivalent of deploying. I had Instant rails on my laptop with mysql and the whole shebang. I now want to show my work to my professor and I am not looking to do a “production deployment”.
I tried moving my entire instant rails folder into a machine that has an IP exposed outside. However when I start mongrel it says listening at localhost or 0.0.0.0:3000.
I am not able to hit it from outside.
Is this a regular “port not open check firewall” issue or is there a setting in mongrel that tells it that it is not just serving localhost anymore?
