Set up vagrant for Rails

leave a comment »

After you have setup vagrant and created your first rails application and forwarded the port from guest to host with:

config.vm.network "forwarded_port", guest: 3000, host: 3000

you may find that by just running “rails server ” on the guest machine won’t really work.

That is, when you try to access the app from the host machine at http://localhost:3000 you get the well known message: “Connection was reset”


Make sure you start your app on guest by binding to By default, rails server binds to localhost.

So on guest the correct way to boot up the rails app is

rails server -b -p 3000

Now if you go to host and try to hit the page, you should be presented with your rails app.
