  1. Try Restarting the Services.
  2. Local Host - Make sure you are trying to access Metasploit through https://localhost:3790.
  3. Remote Host - Verify that you can access the host by using telnet.
    1. Telnet - Linux or Windows: telnet {host} {port} Example: telnet localhost 3790
    2. If using telnet on Windows, you might need to enable telnet. Follow the instructions at https://www.rootusers.com/how-to-enable-the-telnet-client-in-windows-10/.
