How do I map what would be the local port to an ip in rails?

Uhhh so I am a super beginner, but I have a rails on ubuntu droplet which I am working on through the browser console, and I am following the “railstutorial” and I would like to know if there is a way I can access from the web what would be the local default page ( by running the server so it used a particular port (rails server -p) or something like that? Thank you!
