Having issues with HTTP

Good evening mates! I am a bit confused about why i can not access to grafana running on my pc (localhost) from my mobile phone, for instance.

This is how i have configured the .ini:
protocol = http
http_addr =
http_port = 443
domain = localhost
enforce_domain = false
root_url = %(protocol)s://%(domain)s:%(http_port)s/

Taking this into account, if i browse http://localhost:443/ on my mobile phone, i should go into grafana?. I have not too much idea about networking and this topic.

The purpose is to allow different users to access different dashboard in grafana running on a host, from internet of course.

Thank you very much!

Hi @carrerogarciapablo1

Setting up the local networking to expose a service like Grafana from a local PC to other devices on the same local network can be tricky.

Running Grafana on a local PC and exposing the service to the internet at-large can also get tricky fast. I’d suggest running grafana on a virtual machine behind a proper reverse proxy like Nginx, and a domain name.

Alternately, and much more easily, you can create a free-forever Grafana Cloud account and then configure that with your datasources.
