[coldbox-3.5.0-BE] Novice Help


I’m relatively new to coldbox. Currently i’m using DevBox to develop my first coldbox app. I have no problem accessing the app via localhost.

But when i tried to access via another machine on the same network, i cannot access it. The page simply cannot display.

Where should i investigate the problem?

Yep, Andrew beat me to it. You most certainly have one or more firewalls installed on your machine running DevBox that is blocking the port. If the machine is running inside a home network with no direct outside access, I would personally just disable the firewall for that network. Otherwise you will need to put an exception in for that port to be externally accessible. Note, even though the port defaults to 8081, it is configurable to whatever you want.
