Need domain configuration assistance

Bertini, Vickie

I have installed Solr 6.5.1 as a service on our Windows Server 2012. It is up and running properly under localhost:8983, however, I have a domain name I want to assign to it so our external content delivery servers can reach it for our web search. However, I am very new to Solr and mostly only familiar with IIS, not jetty, so is there documentation on how I would configure solr to run on our new domain/IP instead of localhost? Web searches up to this point have been fairly unproductive and unhelpful.

This window solr server must have a name and IP address associated with it.
Check from external content deliver servers if port 8983 to Solr server is
open and if so you can refer solr via http://<machinename>:<port>/solr.
if port 8983 is not open then try to run solr 80/8080 or work with network
team to open the ports.  If you need to access solr server by domain name
then you would have to ask network team to create a DNS/VIP and map it to
solr IP address.

Enjoy!!!

1. run solr on different port other than 8983.
2. If you are exposing it publicly, dont expose through port. But have a
apache/nignx server in middle to pass traffic to solr.

cheers

The Jetty server that comes with Solr is configured to listen on all
system network interfaces.  It is not restricted to localhost.

The operating system may be blocking external traffic.  Most operating
systems have a built-in firewall that will block all external
connections to Solr's listening port by default.  Windows has such a
firewall.  Consult Microsoft documentation for how to configure their
firewall.

Once you have external network access allowed, it's up to you to
properly configure your DNS servers so the domain name resolves correctly.

Thanks,
Shawn

Thanks to everyone who has responded. I will do some testing once the firewall port is adjusted.
