10.4: Access localhost via name from Parallels Desktop
Authored by: gorilla on Apr 12, '07 02:03:18PM

I installed bonjour and want to access my rails server (localhost:3000 on my mac). Doesn't seem to work.... Any ideas?

10.4: Access localhost via name from Parallels Desktop

Instead of trying to access it via localhost:3000 try using

COMPUTERNAME.local:3000

where COMPUTERNAME is the name of your machine.

Go to System Preferences on your Mac and click the Sharing icon, then switch to the Services tab. You will see a message saying, "Other computers on your local subnet can access your computer at ..." followed by a name ending with ".local". Use this name, followed by ":3000", to access your local Rails server.
