Allow Web Access To Your Site Within Your Local Network Using UFW And Ubuntu

Posted By Weston Ganger

I like to use my triple monitor desktop config instead of my laptop but I only keep work up to date on my laptop usually so its easier to just SSH in and work from the desktop.

You are required first to enable UFW to be able to recieve incoming HTTP traffic.

Here I describe how to setup UFW to allow incoming ports.

# Guardfile

guard :rails, host: '' do
  # watch stuff

Now you can access your development server remotely within the same network at http://192.168.1.:3000 Where is the IP of your remote machine.
