Rails environments

Hi
I have a very basic question to ask. ut I dont know how to handle it
properly.Please help. I am working in a team. So I am strting the
application in my machine in development mode. Now my manager asked me
to give it for testing. So should I start the application in my machine
in test environment in another port say localhost:3001 and asks the
testers to access my machine? Is the RAILS_ENV=test has that meaning too
or is it only for my unit and functional tests? If not another pattern
comes in to my mind is to deploy this same application another machine
on the network and run it on test mode there?

 In anyway I am totally confused. For example the mail sending etc I

am current setup on environments/development.rb like
config.action_mailer.default_url_options = { :host =>
“192.168.0.100:3000” }

 But if I setup application for the testers in the first way i

suggested they can’t check mail functionaly etc.
So my question is is there any standard procedure for all these?
Please help.
Please provide some additional readings(urls,…)

Thanks
Tom

Yes, the test environment is for automated tests. The test team should
have the application in production mode.
