Ignition Designer Launcher Connection Exception Issue

When trying to connect to my Ignition Gateway from Ignition Designer Launcher i get the following error:
Error Launching Application:
ConnectException: Connection refused: connect

I am using CentOS 7 linux server with firewall disabled. If I restore the gateway backup on a local ignition gateway, I’m able to launch using Ignition Designer Launcher and can access the projects. However it does not work when launching from the linux server.

I looked up the launch error text file and noticed the following:

Local third party Python modules are different than the ones on the server. Will download updated modules now.
Downloading “https://IgnitionServer:8043/system/scriptModules”…
Download attempt #0 for third party Python modules failed.

Did you edit that in any way or is that really the configured hostname? Can your server resolve whatever that hostname is?

I had removed the ip address in the text and replaced it with “IgnitionServer”
