in universe_wsgi.ini you find the "host" variable, which defines to
which hosts galaxy should send an answer. Default is to answer only to
localhost. If you want to change that, modify that variable, e.g. host = like suggested in the comment of that variable, or use apache or
another already running webserver as a proxy
(see ).
