Access Rails Development Server From A Different Computer

Sometime you need to access your rails app from a different computer. Here is a trick.

To access your rails app from different computer, you need to run rails app with IP.
While starting the webrick server specify the IP on which your rails application will run (192.168.1.x in your case) using -b option, it binds Rails to the specified IP.

rails server -b 192.168.1.x -p 3000

That’s it. Happy coding 🙂
