I'm trying to get JIRA and Confluence installed on a local machine on our private LAN so our small team of developers can use the tools. However, Confluence won't let me connect to the JIRA server. If I set the JIRA Base URL to http://hostpcname:8080 and then enter that in the JIRA Base URL field when setting up Confluence, it says: "This is not a valid URL for JIRA 4.3 or later." I've been following along with the instructions of your Dragon tutorial and this is where I get stuck.
The host pc does not have a webserver installed, but I am still able to access JIRA and Confluence from another PC on the network by entering in the base URL and port or even using the machine's static IP address, but I can't get Confluence to use either of them to connect to JIRA. We have no intentions to open this up to the outside world so I wasn't intending to install a webserver at this time. Unless that's the only way to successfully complete this step.
Confluence and JIRA standalone versions both come with tomcat configured to respond to web requests, you do not need separate webserver. You will need both of the machines configured to have the ports open so that other machines on the network can reach them. Can you telnet from confluence to jira? I would do normal network troubleshooting to ensure the confluence machine can reach the jira machine.
