A virtual world hosted in my machine

A virtual world hosted in my machine

I did some experiments with OpenSim and now I have a working 3D world simulator that works like Second Life – you can even use the Second Life official client to connect to it – but since it is hosted in my own machine it is completely free to upload stuff and I get to control everything.

Getting it to work in Ubuntu 9.04 was pretty straightforward except for one caveat: when running it for the first time, it asks for some values. When it comes to the internal IP address, the default value is, but you should actually enter

Now I am trying to install it in my server to let people outside my network to log into it. I will continue reporting here.
