We have a node installed on a Windows Server 2008 that should be listening to port:3000. When we hit the page while on the server everything works as it should but... when we try to hit the same page from another machine it we get a
ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED error. I have added a new rule in the Server Manager->Configure->Windows Firewall wutg Advanced Security->Inbound Rules.
With the following settings:
Name: Node Express App Profile: All Enabled: Yes Action: Allow Override: No Program: Any Local Address: Any Remote Address: Any Protocol: TCP Local Port: 3000 Remote Port: 3000 Allowed Users: Any Allowed Computers: Any
I have tried using an online tool yougetsignal.com to hit my server IP at the 3000 port and it returns
Port 3000 is closed on xxx.xx.x.x(server ip)
Not sure what next steps might be to help? Do these rule changes require restarts? Any feedback would be helpful.
