Target Result: To set up Wekan on Windows Server 2012 R2 and remotely access it

Current Status: Currently the site is now up and running if I access it inside the server via this URL http://localhost:3000

The Issue: The site is up, I can access the site using localhost:3000, but when I tried to access 127.0.0.1:3000 I am just getting a blank page but the tab title and icon is showing correctly. I can't also access the site remotely using its IP address.

Things tried but didn't work:

  • Run this command to CMD: netsh http add iplisten 127.0.0.1
  • Update the hosts file from C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc and uncommented the line 127.0.0.1 localhost

Other infos:

  • When I tried to access http://localhost and http://127.0.0.1 both are showing same result (IIS Windows Server page)

  • When I ping localhost it replies from ::1: (from my research this is the equivalent of 127.0.0.1 in IPv6, I might be wrong)

  • When I ping 127.0.0.1 it replies from 127.0.0.1:

Please help or give me hints why localhost:3000 and 127.0.0.1:3000 is not showing the same result when accessed via browser.
