Hope you are able to locate config.xml in your domain atleast.

Otherwise, search for config.xml in the directory from where you are starting

Now, in config.xml, do the following


Replace ENTER_YOUR_HOSTNAME with your machine name. I hope your server name is AdminServer. If you see something else dont change it.

CRUX is to just set listen-address value and restart your server. Now you can access from anywhere provided your machine name is resolvable from other systems.

You dont need to add listen-address 2 times. It should be like follwing


In /etc/hosts ensure, admin-cgi1 is properly mapped to your ip. Check in other boxes if it has got the admin-cgi1 is properly configured in its hosts file.

you can check by running "ping admin-cgi1" from other boxes. If it works, you should be fine.

If possible, check if you can remove admin-cgi1 mapping to in your /etc/hosts file.
