Hi Kenneth

If you try to connect to "localhost" using your PC, it will search for a (galaxy)server on your PC. Hence, you need to replace <localhost> with the name or IP adress of the server where Galaxy is running

To Galaxy,
I installed Galaxy on my local server..

I modified the universe_wsgi.ini file as follows:
# The address on which to listen.  By default, only listen to localhost (Galaxy
# will not be accessible over the network).  Use '' to listen on all
# available network interfaces.
host =

I type the following command at the LINUX prompt to start the service
$ sh run.sh
Starting server in PID 2685
serving on view at

When I open FIrefox directly on the server and go to the web address
the galaxy screen appears.

When I open FIrefox on my PC and go to http://localhost:8080, I get
the following error
"Unable to connect Firefox can't establish a connection to the server
at localhost:8080."

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
