I'm trying to set up a twitter oauth from my rails app, and I got it to work fine from my local machine, but it doesn't appear to want to work on my production environment. The only error I'm getting is an "Unable to Connect" at my nginx port number. Any ideas?

Are you trying to connect to the port assigned to your app from an external IP?

If so, then it is not possible since for security purposes we don't allow incoming connections on custom ports on the shared IP.

You would have to get a dedicated IP($5.month) and get the port opened on that for this to work.

Hope that helps!

It is a dedicated IP, I have ssl on there as well.

Then, you would need to get the port opened in the firewall by filing a support ticket with us.
