I'm trying to connect to Business Automation API on my APS sandbox, which IP should be used?


By default Business Automation API listens on 172.x.x.x IP address however it is possible to make it listen on all IPs:

Copy the sample .xmlrpcd.conf to xmlrpcd.conf in Business Automation configs folder:

[root@pba ~]# cp /usr/local/bm/etc/ssm.conf.d/.xmlrpcd.conf         /usr/local/bm/etc/ssm.conf.d/xmlrpcd.conf

In xmlrpcd.conf change arguments = $(HOST_IP):$(XMLRPCD_PORT) to arguments =$(XMLRPCD_PORT). This will allow connection from any IP (and therefore it should never be configured that way in production, it is a huge security hole).

Restart the xmlrpcd to apply the changes:

[root@pba ~]# /etc/init.d/xmlrpcd restart
