Can't access OO Central via IP address

Jump to solution

I can launch my OO Central just fine from

https://localhost:8443/oo or https://127.0.0.1:8443/oo

but NOT when I use https://fully.qualified.domain.name:8443/oo or https://xx.xx.xx.xx:8443/oo

where xx.xx.xx.xx is the IP address of the machine. What could be the problem?

It turns out I had to use just the first part of the FQDN. So instead of

https://name012345.foo.bar.net:8443/oo

I used

https://name012345:8443/oo

and was able to access the central page just fine. I realized this by looking at the output of

netstat -a -o

and seeing something like:

Proto  Local Address          Foreign Address        State           PID
TCP    0.0.0.0:8443           NAME012345:0           LISTENING       48424

Oops, it should be "CAN'T access OO Central via IP address". I can't edit the post.

Tell us more about the setup.

Is the host you're running on your desktop? A server? What OS?
Is the target behind a software or hardware firewall? If so, have you allowed 8443 inbound?
