How do you get a client to connect to a nodejs server running on repl?
I'm attempting to make something along the lines of a simple chat room with socket.io (copied an example chat room app online that I will repurpose for a drawing/text multiplayer game).
Correct me if I'm misunderstanding this but,
I want the client to connect to the server (but I need to know the server's ip) so I do:
var ip = require("ip"); console.dir ( ip.address() ); server.listen(6969);
Log it so I can paste that IP in the client's connect function call:
var socket = io.connect('172.18.0.78:6969');
But the client gets a timeout error and it seems that it can't connect to the server. I have verified that the server is running first.
Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
This works with localhost in my Visual Studio project, any time I make a nodejs app for repl.it it just doesn't seem to work out.
