Tunnel host consistently falls back to localhost


When trying to start expo via the cli on linux, it almost always fails to generate the direct (tunnel) link and instead generates a localhost address. Its my understanding this is because it cant connect to the tunnel service and so falls back to localhost.

I’m running Arch Linux with no Anti Virus/Firewall to speak of so I’m not sure what could be blocking it.

Are there a list of addresses/ports I can trace to see where the issue might be.



I’d try using ngrok yourself and see if that works – we use this under the hood.
