Web server IP settings

Post by cardiofuse » Sat Jun 02, 2018 1:39 pm

I’m trying to install the newest version of BI on a Mac with Parallels and nearly finished. I’m just trying to figure the correct settings to view this remotely on my iPhone with the proper network settings. I do use Dyn.dns service to follow the LAN address. The Mac and the VM have different IP parameters. Maybe the settings can’t be shared. Looking for some direction...

Have you set port forwarding on your home router to forward incoming network connections to your BI instance?

Is the web page viewable from another computer within the home? I'm assuming that 192.168.1.99:port number is the VM instance running BI.
