HPQC 12.20 Community Edition - How to setup the URL/IP for the server?

Hello, I just installed the free "HPQC 12.20 Community Edition",

see my fanpage

 http://www.hemmerling.com/doku.php/en/alm.html

 with many tips+tricks+links to external resources about "HPQC 12.20 Community Edition"

 

**************

How to enable Network access on Windows ?
**************


The HPQC server is just accessable on the same computer at
http://localhost:8080/qcbin
and at
http://192.168.178.2:8080/qcbin

With Windows Firewall of this computer enabled,
on a different Windows computer in the same local network, using MSIE11 explorer, after installation of the HP ALM Client, it is not available at
http://192.168.178.2:8080/qcbin

With Windows Firewall of this computer disabled,
access works fine from other computers.

WIndows Firewall settings:

[x] World Wide Web Services (HTTP) - [x] Private, [x] Public

[x] Java(TM) Platform SE binary - [x] Private, [x] Public

[x] Java(TM) Platform SE binary - [x] Private, [x] Public

So also canĀ“t identify the name of the web application, to enable it with the Windows Firewall...

Maybe I must explicitely setup a different application ( not in the existing Firewall application list ) by  Windows Firewall to enable it?

Any help is appreciated.

I read with some horror about HPQC9:

The QC server IP address change and how to access
http://www.databaseskill.com/1040072/

and did not understand much :-(, and why it was implemented that way.
It is outdated, and I hope that I must never touch the database with the current version...

Sincerely
Rolf

Depending on your situation this may or may not be advisable.

For our ALM server Windows Firewall is off. This is acceptable in our environment as it sits behind several network based firewalls and has no access to the internet.

If your ALM server will not / does not have access to the internet, this may be acceptable.
If your ALM server will have access to the internet I'm sure you'll want some form of firewall. Unfortunately, I cannot advise on settings as do not have the needed skillset to provide a proper solution.
