I have installed a node based lightweight web server https://www.npmjs.com/package/http-server in my droplet and trying to serve a directory with it.
mkdir web cd web http-server
This shows the output as -
But when I try to access http://22.214.171.124:8080 from my browser, it times out. However, logging in to another terminal via ssh and running
curl http://126.96.36.199:8080 gets the output.
Could anyone please indicate what I need to do to access the server from outside the network?
