Cant login with MongoDB Compass

I can login with the ssh, but it doesnt seem to work if i try to use mongodb compass. I have authorization enabled and i login succesfully with SSH for mongodb. But it doesn’t work on mongodb compass. It says Connection Timedout.


It does still say localhost if i type “sudo systemctl status mongod”, how can i change this to an ip address?
