Team,

 

I have installed AEM 6.5 in my personal windows laptop on a Rhel - Linux7 machine and i am able to access AEM console via http://localhost:4502. Any idea how i connect this machine with a different name,it can be any name instead of a localhost. I tried adding below entry in /etc/hosts file, but no luck... Any suggestions please how to overcome this problem.

 

/etc/hosts entry

127.0.0.1 aemsite.com

Also you can use apache i.e. in /etc/httpd , you can add you publish instance as the origin and apache can have any domain.

in the /etc/hosts file you can man localhost(127.0.0.1) to any other name you like , so that you can access with that name.

 

Also there is another option , use 3rd part software called ngrok which does similar job. 

Use the comand ngrok http 4502 , it will give you the host name thru which you can access (note: You need to install ngrok plugin for this)

This is not an AEM specific question; you don't need to configure any hostname on AEM just for accessing it, but there might be occassions where you need to do that.

 

To your problem: According to https://www.redhat.com/sysadmin/set-hostname-linux you can use /etc/hosts to create an alias for localhost.
