Ios driver requests doesn't reached to the appium serevr

when i launch appium on our new mac mini the ios driver http requests are not reaching to the appium server.
i run "driver = new IOSDriver(new URL(""),capabilities)" & though the appium server configuration include the same IP & port nothing is sent to the server.

  • do notice that on my local machine the code runs great.
  • on the mac mini i have checked & verify that firewall is disabled.
    any idea what am i missing here?
