Hey there I've trying to sort this out for a while now and hoping someone can help.

The Goal: To have multiple HTML5 players (hosted on itch.io) connecting to a single windows app as the server/host player. This will be an assymetrical game, and this is totally an experimental thing, so im trying to avoid using an external server for now...

What I Have So Far: I have the websocket server running on win10 and an HTML5 client running on itch.io. They successfully connect when I access itch from the same local machine that is running the server and I use ws:// (localhost) as the url.
Using the HTML build on Itch.io, it will not connect from any other device on the same LAN, nor will it connect from the internet (had a friend try with my public IP).

Also: I have opened the port (4088, arbitrarily chosen) on my modem AND firewall. I have tested a windows and linux build of the client app and both are succesfully able to connect over LAN and via the internet (friend tested).

Final Thoughts: All this leads me to believe the problem lies with the HTML export... maybe I missed something specific to HTML5? Does my setup just not work in HTML5 exports? I'm new to networking so hopefully I'm just missing something obvious!

Attached my code, hope you can help :)
