In addition to this very good article , here are a couple of tipps how to enable remote debugging.

node –inspect=192.168.178.133:9229 yourapp.js

This will bind the debugger to a different IP address:port. Otherwise only LOCALHOST will be available

If you are using PM2

pm2 start –node-args=”–inspect=192.168.178.133:9229″ yourapp.js

Then open Chrome browser and navigate to chrome://inspect

Check “Discover network targets” and click “Configure”

Your application is ready for inspect
