Can't get into web GUI on fresh install

I have a r710 with a fresh install with everything working but the GUI.
-Both the PC and server can see each other, I can ssh and everything is open
-Updated everything, tried restarting pveproxy and updating certificates.
-I get a " refused to connect" on Chrome and "unable to connect"on Firefox.
Proxmox is new to me and I've just kinda hit a dead end on what to try next. I'd greatly appreciate any help I can get at this point.

this sounds like your hosts file is not correspond with your IP setting.
Please check your IP against /etc/hosts and also the name in the hosts file must match the name in /etc/hostname

A valid host entry looks like this
Code: pve
Do you open the URL with https:// instead of http:// and add the port and the end ( :8006)?
Hey wolf, this is my hosts file
Code: localhost.localdomain localhost local.local local
And just
In hostname

No luck with and port sb-jw
