Accessing external IP address (3 posts)

    I am a web developer and I have a new client, a law firm that have commissioned me to build a website for them, for safety reasons they host their websites themselves and do not allow direct access.

    They have set everything up for me including WordPress and they have sent me the following message to access the site,

    ". We've got a fresh WP site set-up now. The IP address for your hostfile is 8x.1x9.xxx.xx1 http://www.thedomainname.com" (i've changed the actual details)

    I am not sure how to access the site, I am using a mac, I know it must be through some kind of text-editor (terminal?)

    Can anybody help?

    Thanks

    Allan

    I'm afraid you will need to ask them about this. We cannot really advise on what is, after all, a private system.

    I appreciate that but I am sure other web developers have had to use this method to access a site.
