Common errors

cannot connect to the localxpose agent

This error occur when your machine is unable to reach LocalXpose servers due to multiple factors:
  • Your firewall is blocking outbound port 54536/tcp.
Check if your can reach the internet on port 54536/tcp by running the following command:
telnet 54536
If you can't reach it then, open this port in your network and try again.
  • Your DNS is blocking LocalXpose DNS resolutions.
If you have a custom DNS in place like Cloudflare, Google, quad9, ...etc or you are using the default ISP DNS server, then check against them if you can resolve the domain for example:
# *nix OS
drill # or dig
# windows
You should see the IP in the response, if not then try to change your DNS server to Cloudflare, here is a tutorial for changing your DNS in *nix or Windows.
  • Your ISP is blocking LocalXpose traffic.
If all the above do not work then most probably your ISP is blocking LocalXpose traffic, then the only solution is to start your tunnels with a VPN.
