I was able to login as


Done some import jobs, publish the map, copied the API link to a sample HTML page. Able to view the whole base map and CartoDB layer from local. But I tried from other network, the CartoDB layer seems to be not seen. Checked the console, but no errors where logged. Edited the development.js from the Windshaft directory and changed the localhost instances to domain name, and also the app_config.yml files.

The local system browser knows about your domain just because you've added an /etc/hosts entry pointing domain to your localhost.

I see two ways for you to see your cartodb from a remote network:

a) accessing your computer using it's public IP, like this: http://public_ip:3000

b) having access to your DNS server and inserting Address records for your domain and for your subdomain, like this:

NAME                    TYPE   VALUE
domain.com              A      public_ip
subdomain.domain.com.   A      public_ip

This way, you'll be able to access your machine from remote using http://domain.com:3000

  • I am been able to access cartodb dash board from remote using http://<domain_name>:3000. But still not able to load a layer, that is rendered using cartodb, from remote. I have using cartodb.createLayer(mapObject, cartoframeLayerURL ,{no_cdn: true }) to create layer.

  • How looks your cartoframeLayerURL? Is something as domain.com:3000 or subdomain.domain.com:3000? Feb 3, 2014 at 8:30

  • Did you have a firewall blocking the 3000 port on your "server"? Did you tried to disable it or adding a passing rule? Feb 3, 2014 at 11:30
  • port forwarding is done for port 3000.
