    That link to me says that you're trying to access it on a different address to that which is registered in the /wp-admin/options-general.php (or /wp-admin/options.php) page. The site address should be set to being exactly as you need to access it, including any ports required. So, if you want to access it via localhost:17351 then it should be set to http://localhost:17351, if via the IP address that's showing there (which looks like it is probably already set with http://localhost:17351). To me, it would suggest that you should be using the localhost to access it as if not, Wordpress will try to redirect you to localhost (which if you're on a remote machine is useless obviously) then it will try and direct you back to the IP address you accessed it with.

    If you struggle to change it via the interface remotely, you might have to do it from the server it is served on because of the localhost thing, otherwise you could change it in the SQL.
