i have connected my raspberry pi B+ to my laptop via an ethernet cable. i am on an ubuntu machine and i have shared my internet connection through the network configuration of the laptop. so wifi-> laptop-> ethernet_cable->RPI. the connection is successfull and i can
sudo apt-get upgrade etc... on the raspberry pi.
Now, i am developing a flask application and i run it on my laptop's localhost
127.0.0.1:5000 (i do not want to run the server on the RPI, that is not the rpi's purpose for the project). what should i
ping on the raspberry pi in order to visit the website, make an api call etc.
If the information i provided is insufficient please comment politely and i will provide as much as i can.
