This is the command I am using to run the node (a private testnet)

geth --networkid 420 --nodiscover --rpc --rpcaddr "0.0.0.0" --rpcport 8545 --rpcapi="db,eth,net,web3,personal,web3" --rpccorsdomain "*" console

This is the code I am using to connect to the node on the server side of my app

Meteor.startup(() => {
  web3 = new Web3(new Web3.providers.HttpProvider("http://localhost:8545"))

If I try web3.isConnected() on the server side it returns false

I also tried console.log(web3.net.listening) as recommended by the comments but this gave the error:

TypeError: XMLHttpRequest is not a function

I can connect fine on the client side and web3.isConnected() returns true

I am running the app locally on my computer
