you may need to do virtual hosting i think.
For that you can make entry in C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file
92.168.21.33 xyz.com

Hi Saly,

Are you on the same network with your friends? The IP address you have copied is an internal one. If you and your friend are on the same network, you can use the http://192.168.21.33:8080 address (if the 192.168.21.33 is the server's IP address).

If you want to share the documents with someone outside of your network, you'll need to modify your router / firewall configuration to forward the external port to your external server. You can find more information about it on the router / firewall UI or documentation.

Cheers,
Zsolt

By default, tomcat bundle default should be localhost:8080

I'm not sure why 192.168.21.33 because the default port number is 8080.

Hi Zsolt,

thx for your help.
yes we are on the same network. but if i use loalhost on the server i cant open the portal from my pc.
so i want to replace it by 192.168.21.33 .

if i downloaded the liferay to my pc and put the 192.168.21.33 instead of localhost, each one can open the portal from his /her pc but the problem that every file or document added to the portal will be located on my pc and the files are with large sizes, so i want to put it on the server to avoid this problem.

hope that you will get my point emoticon

thx again

Hi,

I'm not completely sure if I understand it emoticon

If you put the server IP to the URL you should access the liferay instance. You can edit where tomcat listens to a port in the server.xml, however I think it should work for you without any modifications.

Try to switch off the firewall on the windows server, probably it's the one who blocks the access.

Hi Saly,

but how can i put its address as [ http"//192.168.21.33:8080/]


Just paste the server(Common Machine's) IP Address to browser. As you have mentioned that you are on same network.

You don't need to add entry in host file also.
Let me know if you are still stuck.

Thanks,

Hi Saly,

Paste the server IP Address like : 92.168.21.33:8081

Windows firewall is on in my machine. But, I think it's not the issue if you turn of the windows firewall.

Thanks,
