07. Can I Connect to VVEngine from a Remote Computer?

*** Requires VVEngine 1.1 or any later version ***

Yes, you can connect to VVEngine from a remote computer. You will need to change the default VVEngine settings in order to do this, because, by default, VVEngine only allows web browser connections from the local computer (IP 127.0.0.1).

  • Select "Start" > "All Programs" > "VVEngine for ViceVersa PRO" > "VVEngine Settings".
  • In the VVEngine Settings dialog box, enter the IPs that will be allowed to connect to VVEngine in the "Allowed IPs" field.
  • Click on "Apply Changes". VVEngine will restart with the new settings.
  • Click on "Close".

After this change, to connect from a remote computer, type http://<ip>:<port> into the web browser address bar on the remote computer.
<ip> is the IP of the computer where VVEngine is running.
<port> is the VVEngine HTTP port, usually 8001.
For example http://192.168.1.100:8001


Some 'Allowed IPs' examples

To allow only the local computer to connect to VVEngine (default):
Allowed IPs = 127.0.0.1

To allow the local computer to connect to VVEngine and the IP 192.168.1.1:
Allowed IPs = 127.0.0.1|192.168.1.1

To allow the local computer to connect to VVEngine and all IPs starting with 192.168:
Allowed IPs = 127.0.0.1|192.168.*

To allow the local computer to connect to VVEngine, all IPs starting with 192.168 and IP 10.10.10.10:
Allowed IPs = 127.0.0.1|192.168.*|10.10.10.10

To allow all IPs to connect to VVEngine:
Allowed IPs = *

If you're installing the VVEngine on a Windows Server it is likely that all connections to the web access on this server will be blocked by the firewall. To allow connections, create an inbound rule and select "Port" type with TCP as protocol. Then type in the port you're allowing (8001) and set it to "Allow" on the profile your server is connected to.
Without creating an inbound rule on the firewall, web access to the VVEngine from another computer will probably fail.

Yes, if you have a firewall protecting the server or computer where the VVEngine is running and want to allow access to the VVEngine from another computer, then you'll also need to open the VVEngine port (the default port is 8001) in the firewall for incoming connections.
