Can't access Odoo on Google cloud.

I have successfully installed Odoo on Google cloud (VM ware instance Ubuntu 14.04 LTS ) and started Odoo service. everything seems well.

but while I am trying to access the instance from external IP it is not allowing me to access. to check whether IP is working or not I have installed apache2. but I can access apache2 default page from external IP.

have anyone installed Odoo on Google cloud?

On Google cloud by default http traffic is not allowed. you can access Apache's default page that means you have allowed the http traffic.

May be your problem is with port. you can access Apache's default page because default port of Apache is 80 and it is open. if you are starting odoo on port default port(8069) you need to that port. for that you need run a command on terminal using root like

iptables -I INPUT 1 -p tcp --dport 8080 -j ACCEPT

after that you can access odoo on http://your.ip:8069

another possible option is to redirect the port 8069 on port 80. to redirect port open a file /etc/rc.local using

nano /etc/rc.local

paste a command

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 8069

and reboot your server using

sudo reboot

after reboot you can access odoo on default port like http://your.ip
