Can't access container with LAN IP

Hi, Docker noob here.

I’m running Docker on Windows 10 Pro (Docker version 20.10.5, build 55c4c88) using WSL2 engine running a linux container.

My container is exposing ports 5055:5055 and i’m able to access it on localhost:5055.

However I would like to be able to access this container from other devices within my home network.

I’ve tried the local IP of the PC that is running the container (192.168.0.18:5055), I have tried the docker container IP 172.17.0.2:5055 and the bridge IP 172.17.0.1:5055 but all of these just timeout.

My firewall is off, i have no VPN or Anti virus installed on here.

Any help is appreciated here.
