Discourse works only from localhost (using PuTTy), Unable to connect via IP Address or domain name

(Sathya Narayanan Subramanian) #1

Hello there,

I’ve installed Discourse on Docker with Ubuntu from Azure (not from one-click-install). I’ve connected to the system via Putty, and have made a tunneling to local host, and thereby, i’m able to complete the installation process with the help of localhost. Now, i’m unable to reach the site via IP address or via domain name. How to take things forward.

Virtual IP address:
Domain name: forum.vaaithaa.com
Method: Created a ‘A’ record for ‘forum’ pointing to “”.

You probably need to trek Azure to open the port.

Thanks for the reply Jay. Mind sharing the steps, as I’m not aware how to do that. Thanks in advance.

For $150 I’ll figure it out for you. What I’ll do is google “azure configure https http” and follow the first or second link on that page.
