Accessing MAYAN EDMS from other computers on the network

Post by pakaraima »

On Ubuntu 18.04 I have installed MAYAN-EDMS. It works on the machine on which it was installed. I can access the program if I use the local host address thru the loopback or the explicit address e.g. 192.168.1.36:8000. I cannot access the machine from another computer. It times out if I enter 192.168.1.36:8000.
I was looking ( for a couple days!) for a parameter to change that will allow me to access the program, from another computer on the network. This is the value of MAYAN_ALLOWED_HOSTS="['*']"
I am not familiar with Django or Gunicorn.
Thanks.

Which installation method did you use?

The installation method and Docker image allow external access by default.

Check that you don't have a firewall and it is blocking port 8000.

If you are using the runserver command, set the IP address of the installation to 0.0.0.0:8000 to allow external access. But this method if only for testing and development.
