I have a Windows 7 machine that I am working on right now and am having trouble connecting to a local server that is bound to
On all the other machines that run this configuration it works fine.
The machine connects to the internet via a proxy configured in the windows Internet Options settings. I currently have the checkbox ticked that says "Bypass proxy for local addresses"
Once I have the service running I am attempting to load it via Chrome. Normally
http://127.0.0.1:1337 will work, but it appears that it is trying to resolve through the proxy, the same goes if I try
For testing purposes I added
127.0.0.1 appname to the hosts file. If I open chrome and load
http://appname:1337 it works.
This problem doesn't make any sense to me. What could be causing this?
Edit: If I attempt to load
http://localhost without the port number it appears to resolve locally, but if I try to load
http://localhost:1337 it attempts to resolve through the proxy.
Update: I can load the application in IE but not Chrome. Chrome is trying to send it through the proxy. I need it to load in Chrome as the application is in NW.js
