I have installed the trial version of JIRA on a windows 7 machine which has a static IP address (121.79.xxx.xx).
After spending a lot of time on the documents that provided by JIRA and I am still failed to connect to JIRA over Internet.
Could you please advise the simplest way to make this happen? The base URL is set to http://localhost:8080 at the moment.
Do you mean I don't need to edit anything in the server.xml? I have made some changes on it already and yes I have tried http://121.79.xxx.xx.8080 and https://localhost:8443 (as the instruction recommended). Should I undo anything on the server.xml? I can just uninstall and reinstall the JIRA. Could you please give me a simple lesson of ip mapping and the DNS thing? many thanks for you help
With the DNS thing, you need to use a DNS server that knows you want to map "http://yourwebsite"; to "121.79.xxx.xxx". Generally, that means buying and registering the domain, and then the provider will get your site added to the global DNS servers. You could do it internally too (only on your internal network) by running a DNS server there and telling all your client machines to use it (a lot of organisations do that so they provide network names for their internal services) You don't need to mess with the server.xml or other settings unless you decide that running the system on a different URL and port is a requirement. The fact that it runs on localhost, but not 121.79.xxx.xxx suggests that you have firewalls blocking access from the outside on port 8080 Essentially, you need to do some work on your network - that's not really something we can help you with so much, as we don't know what you've got or how you've set it up.
No, it's the domain name that you own and want to connect to 121.79.xxx.xxx But all that does is mean that your computer will know that when you go to http://yourexternaldomainname, you actually mean http://121.79.xxx.xxx It's just a name instead of an address. You already know this won't work, you say you aren't connecting on 121.79.xxx.xxx - so you need to look at what on your network is stopping that. Usually, it's the firewall.
