I want to host OpenERP on a local server so that all the computers on the network would be able to access it via the server. At the moment, I just use localhost:8080 for the server computer. How can I change the ip address so that other computers in the network can access it?

What is the ip address of the "server" machine? localhost will only work from the server itself, so you'll need to: find the ip address of the server (start > run > cmd > ipconfig if Windows), put the ipaddress:8080 in client machine browser, check local firewall settings, ???, profi-and that should be all. – tombull89 Nov 29 '11 at 12:31
I was thinking that there should be a place where I can change the IPs that OpenERP server accepts. Even when I use my IP, it doesn't open it – yankitwizzy Nov 30 '11 at 9:19
Do you know OpenERP by default sets port 8069 not 8080 don't you? – uprego Aug 6 '14 at 7:02
