So I’m on a mac. I have a Paperspace instance running Windows Server for web development. I have a public IP setup and working. I’ve setup a mapped drive to my code directory in the PS instance, so I can mount it on my mac as a samba share, and code against it there. Overall all that is working.
I want to be able to browse to that site in a browser on my Mac. I’ve updated my host file to add an entry to the site pointing to the public IP. When I try to browse to it I’m getting 403 Forbidden URL. Is there something more I need to do on the Mac or Windows side to make this work? Add a mapping in IIS, or port forwarding or something?
Also to note, a possible additional complication is the site is coded to look specifically for localhost (instead of some custom domain like mysite.com). so what I have mapped is in my Mac hosts file is:
and I’ve commented out the default entry to 127.0.0.1.
Thanks in advance for responses.
