Thank you for your response! Let me ask a follow up question to make sure I’m understanding this/implementing it correctly…
I’m installing Docker and ShinyProxy on a remote server hosted by my school. As such, I’m not downloading the Docker for Windows software on my own computer, and instead installed ShinyProxy via GitHub on my server, since I’ll be hosting my app/website on this server. Does this make sense, or should I be installing it on my own computer and then remote accessing into the server somehow?
Further, the server set up comes with an “instance” with it’s own IP address. Given that, should I even expect http://localhost:8080/ to work on my computer’s browser? Or should I perhaps be typing something else into my browser - like http://[Instance IP address]/:8080?
I found another tutorial that said that if you are doing this on a remote server (as I am), then you should type in
curl http://localhost:8080 to print the html of the site to the terminal. I did that, and it returned:
curl: (7) Failed to connect to localhost port 8080: Connection refused. However, when I checked
sudo ufw status it returned
inactive. Therefore, I don’t think this is a firewall issue (but I’m very new to this).
