Server Issue: Connection refused from computer on same network

    I've got this weird issue with my server, CentOS 7, running nginx, that I can't seem to figure out. Basically trying to access the server from the same network on two devices doesn't work. If I access the site on my desktop, it works fine, open it up on mobile device on same network, it'll open. Then if I refresh the desktop it'll time out and give me a "connection refused" error of some kind. If I don't do anything on the mobile device, just wait about 2 minutes, it'll start working again. It's like something is not letting two devices from the same network view the site at the same time.

    I looked in nginx.conf, firewalld, csf, and any other place I can think of to see if somehow there was a firewall setting or iptables or something that would lead to this and can't figure it out.

    Any ideas?

    Disable firewalld and csf temporarily to see if it fixes itself.

    Do you limit the max number of connections from an IP in nginx?

    Could be IPv6 or TLS related too.

    Remove firewalld if you are using csf or viceversa. You cannot use both.

    Kind regards,
