    Access the Content Manager Open Labs 2.1 over the network

    mr.white

      Hello,

       

      I want to ask how to access the Open Labs secure storage over the network.

       

      On the local PC it is possible to reach it with the following destinations.

       

      ftp://127.0.0.1/

      http://localhost/

       

      I already set up the authorization/authentication.

       

      How to reach it from a PC within our Network ?

       

      Regards

      White

          Hi Mr. White,

          You just need to know the real IP address of that PC. Open your CMD prompt and do 'IPConfig'. Once you know the real IP - you should be able to access it from other computers by using the same URL construction:

           

          http://123.123.123.123/

          Replacing 123 with your real IP address.

           

          If you are unable to access that page from another computer on the network - that PC's firewall may be blocking outside connections. But the OpenLAB installer will (by default) open a port in the firewall to allow web access.

           

          If you want to get a bit fancier - you can use that PC's hostname instead of the IP address.
