TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library

How to access from remote machine?

I'm sorry if this has been done to death, but I couldn't find anything on the subject. I've installed VirtualBox, and then installed Turnkey MediaWiki, and all appears to be well. I am able, from the machine running the VirtualBox app, to type in the IP address of the Turnkey MediaWiki and, voila, it appears. I can also access the TKMW from other computers on my home network (i.e., behind my router/firewall).

My question is, how do I access TKMW from outside my router/firewall? I already have a DynDNS account, but I'm not sure what port TKMW is listening on. I assume I need to figure that out, then open a port in my router that maps to TKMW's port, then all should be well, right?

All I could find regarding specific ports was on the configuration screen when I first installed; it listed a couple of ports for some of the apps - maybe PHPMyAdmin and, uh, something else (but it wasn't "Access your MediaWiki here, dummy!").

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer.

Web applications are listening on the usual ports

http://1.2.3.4/ is shorthand for http://1.2.3.4:80/

https://1.2.3.4/ is shorthand for https://1.2.3.4:443/

In other words the default port for any HTTP web application (e.g., this website) is port 80 unless specified otherwise. For HTTPS web applications it's port 443.

Does that help?

Yep, that solved my problem.

I have a simalar problem so

I have a simalar problem so i won't start a new post. I installed the Tomcat appliance and deployed the Orbeon forms WAR file using the Tomcat web management utilities. The Orbeon application is running but i can't access it from my remote computer. What port is it running on? I tried :8080 and :8180, Firefox still won,t connect. -CTC

Apache listens (80, 443) and proxies back to tomcat

In theory, all you have to do is configure the JkMount (/etc/tomcat5.5/mod_jk.conf) for Orbeon if it isn't already configured, and then access the application via: http://appliance_ip/MOUNT

Hope this helps.

My mod_jk.conf file

My mod_jk.conf file containes no Orbeon config information just user roles.
