Hello people,

I'm having an issue creating a local server, I was able to do this trouble free only a few weeks ago; however for whatever reason I can't any longer. I checked the port forwarding rules, DNS checks and spoke with my ISP. I've tried with and without firewall on. Nothing has resolved this so far. Can anyone diagnose this?

No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it
An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host


Please see below logs, thanks.
