I had configured the pmm-server on docker container which is running on RHEL box, and installed the pmm - client on another rhel server. However when am trying to register the client it is giving below messages. Though am able to access the pmm server using pmm web interface.
pmm-admin config --server :8080
Detected address ‘’ is not locally bound.
This usually happens when client and server are on the different networks.
Use --bind-address flag to set locally bound address, usually a private one, while client address is public.
The bind address should correspond to the detected client address via NAT and you would need to configure port forwarding.
PMM server should be able to connect to the client address ‘’ which should translate to a local bind address.
What ports to map you can find from “pmm-admin check-network” output once you add instances to the monitoring.
