Re: Firefox can't establish a connection to the Server at localhost:8000

Hi Satish,

By the looks of it, this seems to be a firewall issue. Your default HTTP port (80) is enabled, whereas, all other ports seem to be blocked. Can you verify this? Probably by say configuring nginx to run on port 8000, and seeing whether you get the default nginx page when you access

Ok now erpnext is running fine on localhost.
But when I try to access it over the network by typing    I am unable to connect to erpnext.
However, if I only type  I am shown a Welcome Message to Nginx which says Nginx server is successfully installed and running.

So now what configuration should be done in nginx to access erpnext over network.
