Hello Everybody,

Someone could help me in publishing Arachni Web Scanner to an external IP?
Actually I have Arachni in um local network but i`ll need to publish it over the internet to run Arachni from any network.

I`ve been trying to set the host to the external ip with arachni_web --host command but it works only in my internal network

    How is the public-facing IP address or domain name set up? They should be accessible without Arachni. If you don't have that, then the issue is the networking setup.

    Just as a thought, Arachni has the ability to DOS a site if you turn it up. Are you sure that you want to make such a tool public-facing?
