Hi there @cpeters5,

I could suggest a couple of things:

  • Make sure that port 8080 is open for incoming TCP connections via your firewall

  • Make sure that your application is binding to 0.0.0.0:8080 rather than 127.0.0.1:8080 so that it could be accessed via the outside world.

To check that run the following command:

  1. netstat -plant | grep 8080

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
