Deployd (Node.js) only accepts local connections
I cannot not connect to my deployd server externally on
184.108.40.206:5000. I can connect to it locally with no problems.
I am running the ubuntu 12.04 image.
netstat -ntap shows the following:
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:5000 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 8906/nodejs
The code used for the server is taken from the documentation. I have tested with adding both port and server location in
.listen(). The script is run with forever. But I have also tested with just running the script with node.
I have also tested with the test server from the node.js page, with the port as the only argument in
listen(). Still with no luck.
Is there any configuration that I need to do to allow the server to be accessed externally? Any help would be very much appreciated.
