Hi everyone,

I have a python script to connect to the OpenERP using XML-RPC

I have the instance on the local and when I use the host localhost , and it works well

Now when I use WAN IP like 102.137.12.x the connection broks a well and fails, but I can connect to web using http://102.137.12.x:8069/

I have the same problem when I use a Mobile Client !

I think that XML-RPC don't listen WAN IPs !!

Can you help me please

Hello Yug Faa,

If you are working with Local Network,

If there is an wi-fi in your system , there there would be Two IP in your system ,

You can check by using this command


You can see in which Ethernet you are connected so you can use that IP address and port of your openerp to access in other system.

I don't have the max karma to upload image other I will show the everything by Images.

I hope this would helpful to you.

Thank you,

Best Regards, Anil Kesariya(SerpentCS)

Looks like your connection is being disconnected by a firewall. Check that

I will check that
