I do my development on a Linux box. I'd like to test my code on a Windows box running IE - as that is what most of my users will have. The problem is that I can't access the Webrick server on my Linux box from another computer on the network. It just can't connect. I'm guessing that there is some configuration I'm missing - but I can't find it. Can someone offer some help? Thanks in Advance ---Michael

Someimes one way works, but not the other way. b) Also make sure Webrick is using 0.0.0.0:3000 and not 127.0.0.1:3000 Cheers <k/>

I'm not sure where the configuration for Webrick *IS*. I've even grepped for 3000 figuring that if there's a configuration somewhere, it has to have the port in it. Where can I find / change the Webrick configuration?

Try running the script/server command with -h That prints: Usage: server [options] -p, --port=port Runs Rails on the specified port. Default: 3000 -b, --binding=ip Binds Rails to the specified ip. Default: 0.0.0.0 -d, --daemon Make server run as a Daemon. -e, --environment=name Specifies the environment to run this server under (test/development/production). Default: development -h, --help Show this help message. Something you might want to check: set your binding IP, your Port, and make sure your Firewall rules will allow the incoming connection.
