I have jira & confluence installed on 1 server. To reach jira i type IPADDRESS:8080 and logged in on the server (localhost) is it localhost:8090 for Confluence.
But IPADDRESS:8090 does not give me Confluence from the outside
How do i reach confluence from the outside?
I'm stuck with the same problem; I've got a fresh installation of Confluence 4.2.13 on a fresh installation of Ubuntu Server, and while I can access other web applications remotely (e.g. phpPgAdmin), I cannot access Confluence from a remote PC. I can only access Confluence if I log on to the server itself and connect either to http://localhost:8090/ or http://<ip-address>:8090/ or http://<host-name>:8090/.
I tried editing /opt/atlassian/confluence/conf/server.xml and setting Engine's defaultHost and Host's name to the server's registered DNS name, but to no avail.
Edit: if I try connecting in Fiddler, it reports the following:
HTTP/1.1 502 Fiddler - Connection Failed Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8 Connection: close Timestamp: 10:33:37.899 [Fiddler] The socket connection to <host-name> failed. <br />ErrorCode: 10060. <br />A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond <ip-address>:8090
Edit 2: one more data point - while phpPgAdmin and Zentyal both work OK (and both use Apache), I get the same error when connecting to Agenti, which uses lighttpd. This suggests that the problem then is not specifically with Confluence and Tomcat, but some system setting that Apache is overriding to serve up its content, but that Tomcat and lighttpd are not.
It looks like you're right; there was something weird going on with my iptables configuration - see http://serverfault.com/questions/424376/cannot-access-tomcat-application-remotely-but-can-access-apache-applications for how I fixed it.
there should be an entry like
<Host name="123.456.789.10" debug="0" appBase="webapps" unpackWARs="true" autoDeploy="false"> (with your IP-Address of course)
