Simplest way to demonstrate a RoR app

Hi,

I have built a simple RoR application and would like to show it to some
friends.

I would like to assign a dyndns URI like “myapp.dyndns.org” address to
point to the application.

As the WEBrick/Mongrel servers are running in “localhost (so loopback
connections)” and I couldn’t bind them to the external server name or
couldn’t bind them to my IP address.

What is the simplest way to share a RoR application?

Thanks, Hari

go into the config file for the server and attach it to your ip instead
of
localhost?
this would work on a lan because it’s usually easy to set a static
internal
ip for your comp on your router and have it just forward all calls to
the
appropriate port to the computer on that ip.

Kate, I was able to bind it to my internal IP e.g. 192.168…but couldn’t
connect from external machines even though I have configured the router
to forward the port.

How can I achieve this?

Thanks, Hari

use dynamic dns.

that depends. your isp may be blocking that port.
your computer may have a firewall on it that’s blocking that port.
you may need to tweak something else in your router…
many many things could be hampering you that can’t be adequately
debugged
