*** 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 = *
