Default BugBase:localhost vs machinename


I got bugbase installed - it is slick - very nice. Good job, Imar!

However even though I can access all the bug apps from localhost, I can't from machinename. I get:The page cannot be displayed

*I can access the webserver default webpage from machinename.
*I have it listed in the ../drivers/etc/hosts file.
*I checked around inetmgr to see where the ports were configured - but I see nothing.

Any ideas where I would change the port numbers for bugbase admin and regular access sites?

And if there is something in particular is not allowing me to run with machinename (http://far:3166/BugBase/)?

Thanks for any help, Far

Hi Far,

Glad you like the BugBase....

When you use the built-in webserver, it only allows requests from localhost. So, locally you should be able to access it like http://far:3166/BugBase/ (which is the same as http://localhost:3166/BugBase/) but not from another machine. This is by design in the built-in web server. It's meant for development purposes, not production purposes. To access the BugBase across the network, you'll need to add it as a site or virtual directory under IIS.

The ports are chosen randomly. To change that behavior, click your project in the Solution Explorer and look at the Properties panel. You'll see Use dynamic ports which defaults to True. Changing it to False allows you to set an explicit port number.

Hope this helps,

Imar Spaanjaars
