NodeBB running fine port not listening

General Discussion
  • Hey Guys,

    Merry Christmas and such. Doubt I'll see a response today which I guess I can understand 😉

    Saw this last night and just had to try it out asap so I launched an EC2, got node and redis installed.. Nodebb launches just fine, however it won't listen on any port:

    unix 2 [ ACC ] SEQPACKET LISTENING 5613 @/org/kernel/udev/udevd

    The only thing I notice is that while NodeBB is running it does open the two ports 10843 and the *:tram, but when I kill it - those two don't exist there anymore.

    I'll update this if I figure it out. Thanks!

  • And of course 3 minutes later I figure out why.

    I just setup a port forward rule in my iptables and got everything going. Great product - looking forward to messing around with it!


  • @theepiphany glad you got everything going! Merry Christmas! 🙂
