How do we connect to the localhost server via IP address from another device?

I’m working from home on a home wifi I have control of, when I try to connect to the ip address on a phone to connect to the local server, it doesn’t connect. Should I be deploying to glitch to test on other local devices or am I doing something wrong?

Sounds like the firewall might be blocking the connection - what does happen when you try to open the url from your phone?

Ah, works fine if I create a QR Code for the site in Chrome using the Chrome share menu then scan that on my phone

Ah then it might be the http <> https problem again :slightly_smiling_face:

and you tried connecting to http

Manually typing it would only connect via https

This is my goto though, hope this helps others

When manually typing you have to include https://. If you leave it out, browsers usually default to http:// for local connections.
