You can set OPENAI_API_HOST where access to the official OpenAI host is restricted or unavailable, allowing users to configure an alternative host for their specific needs.

Additionally, if you have multiple OpenAI Organizations, you can set OPENAI_ORGANIZATION to specify one.

You should be able to start chatting.
