After successfully using localhost:8080 for my local galaxy install for several months I am now receiving a localhost refused to connect error. Nothing that I am aware of has changed in my environment, so I cleared my cache and even tried to connect with firefox’s browser, but localhost’s message is that it cannot receive any data. I am using tunneling to define forward port to localhost.
Is there any other way I can connect to Galaxy other than localhost when I have a local installation? Does anyone have any other troubleshooting ideas?
