Bamboo Installation: Does it have to be localhost?

I am installing Bamboo on a test server under an evaluation license. The server starts up with bin/start-bamboo.sh, but it can't be reached by browser. I'm trying to track down the cause of the problem.

The installation document says that after you run start-bamboo.sh for the first time you should look at localhost:8085. Since this is a remote machine I can't run a local browser and am trying to connect through the machine's name. Can the initial connection come from a remote machine, or does it have to be the same one bamboo is installed on?

lsof -i shows that bamboo's tomcat instance is listening on port 8085

Hey Todd

use a netstat to see what IP address you bamboo process is connected to : (*nix) netstat -an| grep 8085

if it is 0's,  or 127.0.0.1 - you can either update your etc hosts by adding the hostname to the /ect/host file (or)

edit <install-dor/conf/server.xml  add this to the 8085  connector

 

address="123.456.789.11"   where 123.456.789.11  is your host IP address in double quotes.

restart and try.

good luck!

still no love. Will have to 

netstat -an | grep 8085
tcp 0 0 10.12.16.38:8085 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN

and a telnet to localhost 8085 gives connection refused

ps -ef | grep bamb
tomcat 15206 1 6 13:07 pts/0 00:00:35 /usr/bin/java -Djava.util.logging.config.file=/opt/atlassian/atlassian-bamboo-5.6.0/conf/logging.properties -Djava.util.logging.manager=org.apache.juli.ClassLoaderLogManager -XX:MaxPermSize=256m -Xms256m -Xmx384m -Djava.endorsed.dirs=/opt/atlassian/atlassian-bamboo-5.6.0/endorsed -classpath /opt/atlassian/atlassian-bamboo-5.6.0/bin/bootstrap.jar:/opt/atlassian/atlassian-bamboo-5.6.0/bin/tomcat-juli.jar -Dcatalina.base=/opt/atlassian/atlassian-bamboo-5.6.0 -Dcatalina.home=/opt/atlassian/atlassian-bamboo-5.6.0 -Djava.io.tmpdir=/opt/atlassian/atlassian-bamboo-5.6.0/temp org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap start

frustrating.

Do you have a firewall or similar on the server?

Todd

looks like you are running *nix

the telnet to localhost 8085 will return a connection refused, bamboo is bound to the ip address of 10.12.16.38 5not 127.0.0.1

on the server running bamboo try this

telnet 10.12.16.38 8085

 

if you get a connection refused - the port is blocked by iptables (most likely)

if you can connect - try to telnet from a remove *nix machine to the bamboo server using the above command

if you get a connection refused - firewall or iptables again may be blocking you.

I'll look for your response.  The bamboo process is running so that is great!

 

The bamboo process is running so that is great

 

change "remove" to "remote" is note above

if you can connect - try to telnet from a remote *nix machine to the bamboo server using the above command

 

 

Turns out our new systems automation software has a firewall module that isn't iptables.
