How can I allow remote users access to my JIRA Datacenter eval??

How can I allow users that I have setup to help evaluate JIRA datacenter 8.22 that are not on my home network? the only URL I see is:  http://localhost:8080/secure/RapidBoard.jspa?rapidView=3&selectedIssue=STEV-3

"Localhost" always means "this computer", so your evaluators are trying to connect to a service running on their machines (which, of course, isn't there)

To expose it to other people, you need to use the address of the machine it is running on, and expose that on the network to other people.

As an example, there's a Jira running on a machine in my house, it has a nane like "jiraserver" and it can be reached by any other machine runnning on my network, via jiraserver:8080/jira or the ip-address:8080/jira

There is another machine in the house running a proxy server, which my router routes incoming traffic to.  It proxies through to Jira, so we have

So, from outside my house, I can use http://<external internet ip>/jira to get into Jira.  This is also the "base url" for Jira
