I have my portal and along with my ArcGIS server all installed on my server. I have registered an app and started using Web AppBuilder Developer edition on my server. What I am noticing is when I am linking to different services I am having to use the local url (ex. machinename/arcgis/rest/services), instead of my external URL of gis.adamscounty.org. This is with services, hyperlinks I am doing, along with some of Robert Scheitlin custom widgets.
My question/or confusion is once I get done developing the outside world is not going to be able to get to those local url's so should I be using Web AppBuilder on my computer where I can actually access those outside url's.
I tried to run web appbuilder on my machine but I can't figure out what to put in the URL for portal. On the server I type https://machinename.local/parcgis. On my machine I am typing http://gis.adamscounty.org/parcgis. It is saying the host name cannot be found. I can type this same address into a web browser and it takes me to the home page of my portal, but I can't log in. I tried and got the same results when using https.
Am I forgetting to set something up, or missing settings? If anyone could advise the direction I should take. This is my first time working with both Portal and Web AppBuilder so any clarity would be welcomed.
