Thanks for that link - I tried my best to follow the article, but I had no
luck. If you have the time can you see if you can find my problem:
I want to access the staff client from Ubuntu Koha on my Windows 7 laptop,
so I take it I have to connect the two computers via a router (I have a
spare for this purpose). I want to do this through the LAN not the Internet.
WALK THROUGH OF STEPS FROM THE ARTICLE:
1) *sudo gedit /etc/hosts*
Enter the IP Address and Fully Qualified Domain Name
In the Terminal *$hostname --fqdn* gives ansa-desktop - I take it this is
my Fully Qualified Domain Name.
Can I arbitrarily choose an IP for this? Such as 192.168.1.10 ? Or does it
have to be of a different form?
I have the following in the original *hosts* file:
Should I replace all of this text with:
Or should I just append to the original file?
FYI: when I did it, I replaced the original content with this:
2) *sudo gedit /etc/hostname*
Enter the hostname of your system without domain name
I have the following in the original *hostname* file:
I did not change anything in this file as I thought it was OK according to
the above instruction.
3) In System --> Preferences -> Network Connections
Choose DHCP or Enter Static IP Number, subnet mask and gateway information
When I did it I had the following:
Static IP: 192.168.1.10
Subnet Maks: 255.255.255.0
4) *sudo gedit /etc/koha/koha-httpd.conf*
Change the IP number in OPAC and Intranet virtual host.
So I changed the following:
5) Restart Apache */etc/init.d/apache2 restart*
I restarted, but then the Staff/OPAC client on the Ubuntu machine did not
work. So I restored all the changes to their originals and its back working
now - but back to my original problem that I can't connect the two.
Please let me know if you can help, it will be much appreciated - Should I
also then create a static IP for the Windows laptop?
