I would like to set up an instance whereby the client can access OpenERP using a no-ip address. How can I set this up?
Required settings are not openerp related. You should first find your servers local ip address with command.
Local IP address of your server will be something like 192.168.1.* or 10...* note that address down and enter to the administration page of your zyxel model/router. (this will be the gateway address in the ifconfig output.
Go to the NAT settings and make a new entry with the local IP of your openerp server and port 8069. For the external port you should also define a port 8069 for example.
Now you can access with your new http://yourname.no-ip.org:8069 address
If you need help about setting up NAT settings in your modem take a look at this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OVYC37BQZg
I have been on this all day trying to figure out how to host my Odoo server on the internet, I have open port 8069 with port forwarding and I have even signed in my no-ip account on my rounter's DNS settings and nothing is working,
I have tried switching off my firewall too with no success. Please I really need help on this.
Hello Allen, I have used this before but it has been a while so please bear with me.
First a bit about my setup. OS: Linux Kubuntu 12.10 OpenERP: Version 7 .deb latest Interent: wired DSL connection with a zyxel modem/router.
I can access my OpenERP localy with:127.0.0.1:8069
I set up a host with NO_IP :afbbodenbelag.no-ip.org, respectively :126.96.36.199. I went to configuration->general settings and added: 188.8.131.52 to Alias Domain Using either NO-IP host times out or throws me a login screen. Open ERP login does not work. Neither does the login to my linux machine.
I remember something about setting/editing some stuff in one or various /etc file(s) maybe also something somewhere else, but not sure anymore what and where. It has been a long time since I tried getting OpenERP to run.
