Apologies if this is a stupid question, but while I’m trying to learn wisej (and web development in general) I can only seem to run a web app. with localhost as the URL.
If I try the actual machine IP address – I can’t access the web. app.
Because of this, I can’t actually access/test the web app. remotely because IP addresses do not work.
Using VB.NET (Visual Studio 2012 Pro).
I assume this is a IIS issue? I loathe IIS and would rather avoid it if I could!
How do I fix this so that I can use the actual development machine IP address!?
Thanks for the link. I’ll try it in a few hours.
It’s a shame issues like this aren’t more obvious to the new user. Seems like a lot of mucking about to do something fundamental to the ideology of your product – remote resting a web app. Perhaps you should consider the same link in your ‘getting started’ docs?
What other methods are there to achieve a remote connection? Preferably relatively easy for the beginner.
It seems you are running the Wisej application on Visual Studio, by CTRL+F5 or by menu Debug => Start Without Debugging
In this case, you must be using IIS Express that is controlled by Visual Studio. You can check this setting by double clicking My Project and checking the Web tab, section Servers
By default, when Visual Studio is using IIS Express, it’s binds you application to http://localhost:port. If you want to access your application from a remote system, you should follow some how-to guide about using IIS or Accessing an IIS Express site from a remote computer
