How can I set Confluence so that I have access from multiple PCs?

Hello community. How can I set Confluence so that I have access from multiple PCs. We have 5 Users. Everyone should be able to access from their own PC.

At the moment it works only as localhost on the machine where it is installed.

That's a bit more of a network question than Confluence. 

If you've done a mostly standard installation of Conflluence on a machine, then it's already happily broadcasting to the wider network, but you've only configured that locally.  So, I assume you're accessing it on something like http://localhost:8090/confluence.  You need to:

  1. Test it on the network - can you reach the server on http://abc.xxx.y.zz:8090/confluence ? (replace the abc.xxx.y.zz with the external IP address of the server.
  2. If you can NOT get there, then it's your firewalls and network routing you'll need to look up
  3. If that works, you should get it into your DNS so you can resolve http://myserver to that ip address
  4. Now try http://myserver:8090/confluence

If that last one works, there's a discussion about getting the 8090 dropped out, but if you're happy with that url working, you can just set the Confluence base url to it adn you're done.
