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 portquiz.net 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 us.loclx.io # or dig us.loclx.io # windows nslookup us.loclx.io
You should see the IP
184.108.40.206 in the response, if not then try to change your DNS server to Cloudflare, here is a tutorial for changing your DNS in *nix (opens in a new tab) or Windows (opens in a new tab).
- **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.
