Hola Juan José, 

gracias por tu apoyo,

pero si sabia que necesito tener encendida y conectada a internet en la misma red para la computadora donde instale Odoo y donde la quiero abrir, lo se por que como te cometo he estado usando OpenERP6, el detalle es que no se si por que he estado usando OpenERP 6 en la misma red y en las mismas PC, tenga que reconfigurar el puerto 8080. y si fuera asi no se como tendria que hacerlo si en el modem o en las computadoras.

una vez que desinstalle Odoo por que no pude compartir la base de datos, segui usando el OpenERP 6 y no tuve problemas.

gracias de nuevo Juan José, espero me puedas apoyar con esto.


Hi Juan José

thank you for your help, 

but I knew I should have to get started and connected to the same network for the PC I´ve installed and the PC I wan to open Odoo, 

I knew this, becuase as I wrote before, I have been using OpenERP 6, the problem is, that I don´t know if beacuse I was Using the OpenERP 6 in the same PCs, and the same network, should I reconfigurate port 8080, and If I should so, I don´t know how to reconfigurated if from my modem or from my PCs

once I unstill the Odoo because I couldn´t share datebase, I continue using OpenERP 6 with out problems.

thanks again Juan Jose, I hope you can help me with this.





Mario, try using the :8069 port

From what I understand, it seems you have both versions 6 and 8 running on the same server. So Juan is probably right the port is probably different from 8080 or you should try running the Odoo server on another machine.

Hi Juan Jose and ComputingFroggy I did already, and yes right know I am Using version 6, but at the time I installed Odoo 8 I uninstalled Version 6 including PSQL. so at that time I was just running only Odoo 8. but it didn´t work, I dont know if I have to configure my modem to let this PC get out from port 8080 or 8069 or 8070 thank you for your help!!!

Hi guys, thank you for your help, actually was the windows firewall. I am using Odoo 8 now, but I have one question, I hope you can help me with, in OpenERP 6 I should config the stock account for each category of the products to make an automatic invetory, do you know if for Odoo 8 this comes configurated already or should I make the configurations.

Hi Mario,

Odoo should be running in the PC where was installed at the same time when you want to start in the other PC. Also, you have to connect to the same network to have the same IP adress.
