I can't see the server console box on other computers.

  • hi,
    I installed PufferPanel v1.1 on a new vps and it's great. But the problem is that I can't see the console box on other computers (iPad, PCs) using Google Chrome and Edge. I can only see the server box through the host, (the machine I'm hosting the server on). The start/stop function works and I can send commands, but I can't see my console on other computers except the host one. I tried reloading my browser, but it doesn't work.

  • okay, I portforwarded the port 5656 and can see '{"success":true,"msg":"pufferd is running"}' on my other PCs. I shut down and restarted the vps and the console still doesn't show up. Did I forgot a step in installation or to portforward something?

  • Have you checked that the node's public ip is correct? (it should be the external ip of the machine you are hosting on, and not

  • @GoadingGoat thank you so much. It worked now, I should have followed the directions in the first place, sorry to bother anyone. In the past, I didn't bother to mess with the node settings.
