Couchbase Sync Gateway Connection To External Server

connections

#1

I’m trying to have my Sync Gateway (1.2, Ubuntu 14.04) connect to a Couchbase Server (3.0.3, Debian 6 squeeze) on a different virtual machine that is setup behind a router through NAT. I get the errors below (where IP1 is public IP address and IP2 is local internal IP address of external server):

Here is my config.json:

{ "log": ["CRUD", "CRUD+", "HTTP", "HTTP+", "Access", "Cache", "Changes", "Changes+"], "interface":":4984", "verbose":true, "adminInterface":":4985", "databases":{ "default":{ "server":"http://IP1:8091", "bucket":"groups", "sync": function(doc, oldDoc) { channel(“all_docs”); } } } }

I routed all of the ports from http://docs.couchbase.com/admin/admin/Install/install-networkPorts.html from IP1 to IP2. What I don’t get is why the server is trying to use the internal address when I give it the external one and if this is the cause of the problem? Or am I even setting this up right? Any help would be appreciated, Thanks.
