I was getting this odd error
Cannot render console to 192.168.1.5.
That was the IP of the machine I was running the server on.
In my development environment I don’t care what address it comes from because my OS’s firewall will restrict that.
Recommended: Disable That whiny crap in the development environment
# config/environments/development.rb config.web_console.whiny_requests = false
Or To allow console to a specific address or addresses in all environments
# config/application.rb config.web_console.whitelisted_ips = '192.168.1.5' # or a whole network config.web_console.whitelisted_ips = '192.168.0.0/16'
