New Droplet not finding flask server

I’m trying to deploy a flask app on a droplet (CENTOS) Python 2.5
I’m running into issues viewing from the ipaddress.

(tweet) [root@greetme-centos-512mb-nyc3-01 webapp]# gunicorn app:app -b localhost:80
[2016-12-25 21:11:03 +0000] [22798] [INFO] Starting gunicorn 19.6.0
[2016-12-25 21:11:03 +0000] [22798] [INFO] Listening at: (22798)
[2016-12-25 21:11:03 +0000] [22798] [INFO] Using worker: sync
[2016-12-25 21:11:03 +0000] [22803] [INFO] Booting worker with pid: 22803

Pinging the ipaddress public facing works.

And I added port 80 to the IPTables.

Any suggestions for getting this to work would be helpful.

You’re binding it to localhost, why do you expect it to be viewable using the IP address?

  • That was it. I was used to getting a port 80 forward happening on my local machine.
    I changed the binding to the ip address and it works.
