This is a quick how-to to modify a WebYaST server to work with YaSTroid.  By default WebYaST’s RESTful service only listens on localhost.  Since YaSTroid consumes their RESTful interface we need to change this to allow connections from the internet.  *** Beware *** this will expose your server to the general public so, please be careful.  You could add SSL, but as of right now, we don’t support that.

Ok, so the changes that need to be made are simple.

1. Edit /etc/yastws/lighttpd.conf

2. Change server.bind to server.bind = “”

3. Restart the service. ‘rcyastws restart’

Again, please be careful with this as this does open your server up to the internet.
