I am creating a website that runs Vaadin in JBoss 6. I work under Linux/Firefox but I also want to view it using a virtual machine/Windows /Internet Explorer. Unfortunately JBoss does not accept my request from IE. Reason is that JBoss is bound to 127.0.0.1. Fine if you test it locally, but not if you need to access the page from another machine. So I added the parameter "-b 10.0.0.100" to the JBoss run/debug config to tell JBoss to bind to my external IP address. Now it runs on 10.0.0.100, but the debugger that deploys the .war file cannot connect anymore, since it tries to find JBoss on 127.0.0.1 where JBoss does not respond to.
I want the debugger to connect to 10.0.0.100 and not 127.0.0.1. I know that, technically, it's remote debugging. I have tried to use a remote jboss run/debug configuration, but that requires me to start up JBoss myself while this was a cool feature that IntelliJ did when ran with the local run/debug configuration.
So, is there a way to bind the debugger to my "real" IP address 10.0.0.100, and not localhost 127.0.0.1?
(I hope I am making some sense :))
