Why can't I access my app externally?
I installed node, deployed my app (vue.js / nuxt app) and used npm install. When I use
npm start it uses
nuxt start and I get the message
OPEN http://localhost:3000, which seems to be correct because if I open a second terminal and use
netstat -plnt I get
(Not all processes could be identified, non-owned process info
will not be shown, you would have to be root to see it all.)
Active Internet connections (only servers)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:22 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN -
tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:3000 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 13929/node
tcp6 0 0 :::22 :::* LISTEN -
I also if I use
curl http://localhost:3000 in a second terminal the app seems to work. However, if I enter
http://MY_IP/ in my browers I get
Unable to connect - Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at MY_IP:3000.
Sorry, I am still quite new to this - what am I doing wrong here? Why can't I access my app externally? Thanks for any help!
