I am doing a poor man’s equivalent of deploying. I had Instant rails on
laptop with mysql and the whole shebang. I now want to show my work to
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
exposed outside. However when I start mongrel it says listening at
I am not able to hit it from outside.
Is this a regular “port not open check firewall” issue or is there a
in mongrel that tells it that it is not just serving localhost anymore?
