Subject Re: CouchDB not reachable (beginner's question)
Date Mon, 15 Apr 2013 13:45:47 GMT
Instead of opening CouchDB to the world, I simply access it by
port-forwarding through ssh when I connect to the machine.  Like this:

ssh -L 5984:127.0.0.1:5984 root@mymachine.com

Then on my local machine I can simply access http://localhost:5984/_utils/ and
up comes futon.  It depends on your use-case, but this works well for me.
