Node Http Request with ip address and port number

I’m using the node http request to query an api whose url is ip address and port number.
Making the request with Insomnia (or Postman) I have no problems.
While in n8n it doesn’t work.
I also tried importing the data into the node with curl import.

The error is Timeout.

My question is:
Does the Http Request node work with http protocol, ip address and port number?

Information on your n8n setup

  • n8n version: 1.20.0
  • Database: postgres
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app): Self hosted on CapRover (docker)
  • Operating system: Ubuntu

It looks like your topic is missing some important information. Could you provide the following if applicable.

  • n8n version:
  • Database (default: SQLite):
  • n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main):
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app):

We have the same issue, it looks like non standard ports are not supported in the HTTP Request Node.
