Assuming you are using the most recent version of Instant Rails what I
did is configure Mongrel to run as a service and automatically start and
run my rails app every time I reboot my machine. That way I don't have
to login for the rails app to already start and I can then access it
from not only my local machine but also the other machines on my
I am running on WinXP Pro but this should also work fine for Win2k. See
http://mongrel.rubyforge.org/docs/win32.html for help on how to do this.
Note the example is setup to run your app in production mode on port
4000. You may want to remove the -e production parameter if you are
working in development mode.
Hope this helps!

more acurate, i need to do what must be done for a user just having to
launch a browser and connect (locally) to my railsapp.
1) I simply dropped a shortcut in the startup folder and hoped

When a bit later i manually start Apache, all is going
I suspected a problem with the port and changed it but it didn't
improve anything, it was worst !
Any idea ?
2) I read the FAQ (oh good boy i am ! ;-) )
and discovered the question : "How can I auto-start my Rails app
when I reboot ?".
Of course I jumped on it ... and no way ! No reaction at all.
Just an "unable to connect" error in the browser.
Sure I'm missing something but what ? Do I have to configure
something else in order to use that solution ?
Help help help Mayday !
