access multichain explorer outside of virtualbox

+1 vote
I followed github instructions and set-up explorer. It works when accessing it from my localhost. https://github.com/MultiChain/multichain-explorer

 

When trying to open website on my host windows10 it says website is unavailable. I set up simple python http server and tried connecting to that and it works. I am using bridged mode inside virtualbox.

In order to be able to access the web server from a different location (the host machine in your case), the host parameter in the chain configuration file of the web server on the guest machine must be set to 0.0.0.0, not to 'localhost'. See the comments preceding this setting in the file chain1.example.conf (which you presumably copied as stated in the instructions).
