I'm doing some development. I have two instances of the test server going: python manage.py runserver localhost:8000 python manage.py runserver 192.168.100.100:8000
I connect to both servers using then same openId provider (google). The first time I connected on localhost, I got the sign up and registered.
If I connect to the 192... server, my openId is not recognized and I have to register a new user. Is this normal?
Yes, this is normal. In some cases (but not all cases) OpenID is specific to the domain name of the site like askbot. For example Google OpenID is like that, they even make openid string dependent on the subdomain.
This has an implication that if you change your site domain name or subdomain, some users won't be able to re-use their openid. They will be able to recover the account via email though (if they give real email the first time they register).
