Hey there!

Services that you run on the App Platform are exposed via app domains on port 443/HTTPS. It’s not possible to expose more the one external port. So you should also use the wss:// scheme when connecting. This is not necessarily the same port as you would specify that your service is listening on internally.

There is a sample nodejs repo that uses websockets and can be forked + deployed to the App Platform without any changes if that helps as a reference: https://github.com/snormore/sample-websocket

Hope it helps!
