I have created the websocket chat example which is on socket.io, and i have been successful with it. i can run it on the local machine by pointing the browser to localhost:3000 after running the .js file from node.
I now want to run this on a real server. I have transferred the relevant files using filezilla onto the server, and i am using Putty to run the .js file.
When i type in node index.js into the putty program to run the .js file; it says listening on *:3000.
I do not know where to point my browser to for this application to work...I have tried many different URL's such as the computers IP address followed by :3000 etc without any luck
Does anyone have any ideas on where to point the browser to?
I used to make websites as a hobby when I was about 14 in school but lost touch after leaving school and getting a full-time job. I picked this hobby back up a year ago and am really enjoying it again. So much so that I have started my own company designing websites.
Enough about me, I have a potential client who went to a company on the internet to make him a website and also paid for hosting through him but isn't happy with him anymore and has come to me to see what I can do.
How should this work? Should the maker of the site hand over the account details at the hoster and the website admin user name and password?

I'm Mark, I've been building websites in various forms since 1996, mainly for churches. In 2009 I decided to start a small business to pursue the web hosting aspect of the business. In addition to web hosting I also continue to build sites, but do not advertise that service.
Hope to help others out in the industry and this forum.
