Unable to access localhost on mobile device
Unable to access localhost on mobile.
I am using quasar v1. I am able to access localhost on desktop using http://localhost:8080. But when I try accessing same on a mobile device(for mobile testing) by replacing localhost with my IP address http://xx.xx.xx.xx:8080 it does not work.
Please note I tried setting the devServer options in package.json with the port as 8080 and host as 0.0.0.0 based on some research
Nothing seems to work. Can someone please guide?

Do you really need all that configuration? With my projects I can acess the server on mobile without that.
I am not sure what the problem is. I checked this post https://github.com/vuejs/vue-cli/issues/1616 and some other posts where they mentioned about having devServer config.
Make sure you’re on the same network (on wifi).
Make sure your firewall is off (to test).
Make sure you’re not using McAffee … If you are, uninstall it, stamp on the installer then burn it with hell fire…
Unfortunately, none of these seem to be applicable to me. I am on the same network, also switched off the firewall and I just have windows defender; no other antivirus software.

@hpawar your public url is not a valid url,
//missing. I dunno wat your trying here, but dont need those settings to access a pc within the same network, seeing as youve already turned off av and fw, like others said, you should already can access it. Try removing those config.
@metalsadman Thanks. The problem was something else, more to do with the wrong IP I was trying to access localhost on my mobile. My server was listening to a different IP.
