Force RtView to listen on public IP?

Does anybody know how to force RtView to listen on the public IP of the machine for HTTP-traffic instead of 127.0.0.1!? (referring to port 8024)

One can force proper opening of the sockets for the ports receiving the trace data using the rt-view.yaml configuration file. Like this:

- remoteAddr:
    tag: RemoteSocket
    contents:
    - XX.XXX.XXX.XX
    - '3100'
  nodeName: nice-node-name

By default XX.XXX.XXX.XX is 0.0.0.0 and I run into the same problem here - but forcing listening the public IP manually works here.

Setting any parameter like rtvHost or rtvIp for setting the public IP is ignored by the program. Any given IP during the guided setup is omitted as well. The result is: I can retrieve the index.html from the machine itself using wget - but not from outside the machine.

This is what opened ports look like:

[user@host]$ netstat -ntlp

Yes, the firewall is set-up :wink:

With cardano-node (port 3001) this setup works fine… OS is Fedora 32.

Any Ideas? :frowning:

Replying to my own question :wink:

If someone is interested, there is a closed issue with the same problem. That is exactly what I’m not going to do… I won’t add another layer of software, just because the thing listens on loopback, only…
