How to connect from another machine?

Asked by NoneGiven on 2008-05-26

I have SchoolTool running on a freshly installed and patched Ubuntu 8.04 desktop, and I can work with it fine through localhost. Is there a setting to allow other systems to connect? (I get "...can't establish a connection..." error.) Is this a SchoolTool, or an Ubuntu issue?
Thanks for the great work.

It is a configuration issue with SchoolTool which will be fixed in later releases... I don't remember exactly what the fix is right now... hopefully Ignas will chime in with it...

Edit:

/etc/schooltool/schooltool-2008/paste.ini

and change 127.0.0.1 to 0.0.0.0

I effected the above listed change and yet I couldn't connect. What url will i type in my browser to connect to schooltool after the above change? http://0.0.0.0:7080/ or what? Please clarify.

You would use the IP of the SchoolTool machine in place of the zeroes. i.e.: If I have SchoolTool running on a machine with the IP address of 192.168.1.10, I would use "http://192.168.1.10:7080".

SchoolTool should be running at http://127.0.0.1:7080 Usually http://localhost:7080 will work too.
