Hello, I have a component in the DigitalOcean apps in nodejs with and another component running a static website in reactjs inside the same DigitalOcean app running on localhost the site can connect to the websocket without problems but when I deploy to DigitalOcean does not connect, rest requests work ok.


const socket = socketIOClient(process.env.REACT_APP_WS, {
  query: `token=${token}`,


const server = http.createServer(app);
const io = socketIo(server);

I appreciate any help.
