Information on your n8n setup

  • n8n version: 0.205.0
  • Database you’re using (default: SQLite):postgresql
  • Running n8n with the execution process [own(default), main]:own
  • Running n8n via [Docker, npm,, desktop app]:Docker

Hi @Tk8and15, this won’t work unless these instances are on different networks. If you need to set something like this up you probably want to use Docker. Using Docker you could map different host ports to against port 5678 of each n8n container (Docker docs).

OK, I see, my friend.
