Question - New Community install redirect to localhost


I’ve installed eramba community edition to learn the product. I have installed using the docker method and everything installed fine. I will admit that I am a docker newbie so I apologize if this is a stupid question.

When I navigate on a browser to the IP from a different machine than where eramba/docker is installed (Ubuntu server), I first hit the eramba login page. The problem is after I enter in credentials, the browser receives 302 and redirect to https://localhost:8443/users/prepare

I’m not sure why this is happening. Under the ports for the eramba container I see:
80/tcp,>443/tcp, :::8443->443/tcp

I think this might mean that the container only allows connections from the localhost, but if that is the case, I shouldn’t be able to even hit the login page of eramba. I looked up some other posts that say the proper way to stop and start the container groups and edit the “docker-compose.simple-install.yml” but I don’t see anything in there that limits to localhost, just the port mapping itself.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you!


Most probably you still have a public address set to default. See here: Docker Install | Eramba learning portal
It needs to be setup the same as your DNS record or IP address of your host machine.

Hi Sam,
This was definitely the problem. I must have missed that step late last night when I was attempting to deploy.

After I made that change to the DNS record in my environment, it worked as expected. Thank you so much for the advice and prompt reply!

Have a great day!
