Localnet running in WSL 2 not available to explorer

Hi all,

So in order to get Sui to work on a Windows machine I installed WSL 2, this basically runs a ubuntu vm inside your terminal. Everything works perfect, but when I run the localnet by doing sui start and visit the explorer.sui.io website I should be able to switch to local and connect to my local instance. But this is not the case. It doesn’t connect to it. I’ve tried multiple different IP’s by looking at the IP my WSL terminal gives me but no success.

Wonder if anyone has this setup working with the explorer connected.

gj! i use mac so im good :open_mouth:

Yea, found a way around this though. I pulled the Sui explorer project and ran it locally through WSL instance. Somehow now I can connect to my local Sui network.
