This is the second node behind this IP address. The first node is using port 28967, so for this node I went with 28968. That’s the only thing I changed from the installation instructions. Port is forwarded to the correct IPV4 address for TCP and UDP, I made sure to put the same address with port 28968 during installation, firewall rules seem to be correctly in place. I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong here, the dashboard shows up on the host machine but I cannot access the dashboard by using the IPV4:14002 from any other machines on the network. I can’t seem to restart the service either, when I use the powershell command to do so I get a warning, waiting for service to stop, which it never does. Help would be much appreciated.
To be able to connect to your dashboard from another machine, you need to uncomment the
# server address of the api gateway and frontend app # console.address: 127.0.0.1:14002
and change it to listen on any interface:
# server address of the api gateway and frontend app console.address: :14002
Please use Notepad++ to edit the config file. Do not forget to save it after modification and restart the storagenode service either from the Services applet or from the elevated PowerShell:
You also need to allow this port in your inbound rules on your firewall on that PC.
But it’s better to use a more secure method, like this one:
If the destination PC is different from the first one, and you did not change the listening port with the
server.address: option of your second node, then you need to forward 28968 TCP+UDP to 28967 port and IP of your second PC, however, the
contact.external-address: option should have your external address with 28968 port.
