Pinned topic External access to WAS 8.5.5 Liberty on Red Hat

‏2013-07-18T12:16:33Z |

Hi all,

I've tried to access my app throught external IP and I'm getting the error:  "Unable to connect". The ping works and I've stoped the iptables service for testing and it didn't work as well.

I using Red Hat and WebSphere 8.5.5 Liberty Profile. Does anyone had this issue?

 

Regards.

    By default Liberty doesn't open remotely accessible ports. To override the default to allow remote you want to change the default http configuration in your server.xml to be like this:

     

        <httpEndpoint id="defaultHttpEndpoint"
                      host="*"
                      httpPort="9080"
                      httpsPort="9443" />

    If you want to listen on only one remote IP then you can list the host name, or ip address in the host attribute.
