Changing IP of node red

Hi i'am currently using node-red on my laptop and it's running it on a localhost (127.0.0.1:1880) but i want to runn it over network IP address.
Please, Tell me how can i change my host from local to over network.

Just use the local ip of the machine node-red is running on,
i.e.
http://192.168.1.20:1880

Best to fix the ip of that machine in your router.

By default Node-RED binds to 0.0.0.0, this is short hand address that represents all available interfaces.

The log prints out that it's listening on 127.0.0.1 because this is how most first time users will connect to.

So you should be able to access Node-RED by pointing your browser at any available IP address on the host running Node-RED.

If you want to limit what IP address Node-RED listens on you can set it in settings.js with the uiHost value.
