Exposing python jupyter on LAN

Each Answer to this Q is separated by one/two green lines.

I’ve installed jupyter on local network LAN but im unable to access http://<IP>:8888 from another macine on LAN. I’ve opened ports 8888 and port range 49152 to 65535 with iptables (this range is specified at http://jupyter-notebook.readthedocs.io/en/latest/public_server.html)

This guide http://jupyter-notebook.readthedocs.io/en/latest/public_server.html describes exposing a notebook publicly but I’m just attempting to share over LAN.

Have I missed a step ?

Try jupyter notebook --ip <your_LAN_ip> --port 8888
Then visit http://your_LAN_ip:8888 from another computer.

It’s recommended that you use a password when accessing your notebook server. To set up a password, just run jupyter notebook password. To make it even more secure, you can use SSL for your server by passing the arguments --certfile and --keyfile to jupyter notebook. You can read more about setting that up here.

In macOS, the following worked for me

0. Generate configure file using

jupyter notebook --generate-config

1. Set in configure file and add

c.NotebookApp.ip = '0.0.0.0' # listen on all IPs
c.NotebookApp.token = ''     # disable authentication
c.NotebookApp.allow_origin = '*' # allow access from anywhere
c.NotebookApp.disable_check_xsrf = True # allow cross-site requests

2. Run:

jupyter notebook --ip <your_LAN_ip> --port 8888

It’s also possible to add the IP/host in the configuration file in the c.NotebookApp.ip = '<your_ip_or_hostname>' and c.NotebookApp.port = 8888 parameters.

If you don’t have a jupyter configuration file yet run jupyter notebook --generate-config
