[erlang-questions] Trouble connecting to Erlang in a virtual hosting setup
Tue Aug 21 11:28:57 CEST 2007
I host with Joyent on one of their Sparc Accelerators. My container
has a dedicated IP address and I point both wagerlabs.com and
topdog.cc to it. Internally, though, the name of the box is
I cannot connect to this node with net_adm:ping/1 using the internal
box name since the Erlang ports are blocked.
The challenge code in dist_util grabs the internal box name and fails
in list_to_existing_atom when I cannot connect to my node using my
domain names or the IP address. It also fails with no_node if I pre-
create the atom since the host portion of
the node name won't match that returned by the Erlang node at Joyent.
Is there a workaround for this?
