How do I make my python server actually be accessed remotely?

I have a python server that gets string data from a client. I need an IPv4 address and port for the client to connect to and server to bind to. How do I get this? thx

Use the meta-address to bind to on the server.
For the client, you can use the domain repl provides.
If you really need a ip address on the client you'll just have to resolve it manually with something like dnspython.
But repls proxy will only forward it to your app if its an http request or other http based protocol like websockets. Just plain TCP won't work

replit uses proxy so you cant get IPs

@ch1ck3n ok, but is there an alternative?
