Unable to enable remote api access

As I’ve created API token via dashboard, access to the lotus-filecoin console, and follow the instruction via this link -->

I did input the ListenAddress = “filecoinlotus1130onubuntu2004lts-s-4vcpu-8gb-intel-ams3-01” #

The error stated as "command not found: ListenAddress

The format given is ListenAddress = “/ip4/<EXTERNAL_INTERFACE_IP>/tcp/3453/http” # port is an example

But, where can I obtain the information in my Dashboard for “/ip4/<EXTERNAL_INTERFACE_IP>/tcp/3453/http” # port is an example?

Looking forward to your reply with guidance accordingly.

Thanks so much.

Hi there,

Would you mind providing a bit more information on what kind of API are you building exactly?

The ListenAddress does not really sounds like a shell command but more of a configuration value based on the specific API service that you are using. Can you share the name of the service that you are using so I could check the docs?
