I just installed and authorized 10.1. I can access the manager from the machine using localhost:6080/arcgis/manager however I can't access it outside using the IP of the machine. Also, I'm not sure what to enter for the ArcGIS server connection to manage the server remotely, elsewhere on the network using ArcCatalog. The IP of the ArcGIS server box is For the host name I just used that IP, and for the server url I've tried the following and none have worked.
Any help? I got the access denied message, either the SOM is not started or the user you're trying to connect with is not a member of the agsadmin or agsuser blah blah.
