Hello ror developers.
I Have a small Ruby on Rails program on a MAC home computer,
and wan't to use this home computer, at the same time, as a web server with this same Ruby on Rails program being connectable from Internet and another of my computers.
I ask this question here because many rails developers has mac knowledge.

1. ABOUT THE PROGRAM on home computer, local use:
Pointing home computer to:
http://localhost:3000/user/list responds "hello world" as expected.
user and list is controller and action.
So this Ruby on Rails program works well enough through the local server, Mongrel I guess.
I know my Home computer IP address: http://nn.nnn.nnn.nn.bredband.3.dk/~erikaaaa/, This information is available from Mac System preferences if you set the WEB SHARE flag to ON then you can read the IP address.

2. CONNECTING TO HOME COMPUTER FROM ANOTHER COMPUTER, remote use.
Now, I wish to run the Rails program from another computer, actually the program is a browser on my Windows Mobile Phone which has its own internet connection.


Pointing the Windows Mobile Phone to:

http://nn.nnn.nnn.nn.bredband.3.dk/~erikaaaa/ responds the index.html page which is located on home computer in the (home) Sites folder.

Pointing the Windows Mobile Phone to:
http://nn.nnn.nnn.nn.bredband.3.dk/ responds a page with the text "it works", I don't know where this page is located???


Something surely works.

I think that these 2 requests are answered automatically by the mac os, the mac os respond when it receives a http request. Some server is in action, but which server, is it build into mac os. Mogrel is stopped and I have not started another.

4. my question to you is: which address (request) should I point to from the phones webbrowser in order to connect to the Rails program located in a app0 folder???


Comments and answeres are very much appriciated.

kind regards
Erik
