cannot access Management GUI via xfce+chromium directly on host server


Jul 31, 2021
Hello everyone, i just installed proxmox for the first time and after the installation followed since i needed to get some vms going for work and didn‘t have any client on hand. Now whenever i open chromium and navigate to the given IP ( it says „…failed - [address] didn‘t send any data. This is in chromium running directly on the proxmox host. If i connect from my phone it shows the ultra cut down web version. Internet access is working as well.
Any ideas why this is happening? My first guess would be either the management interface being sandboxed locally or me being an amateur about networks.
