You can connect from Neo4j Desktop

Add Database > Connect to Remote DBMS

Database Name Graph Database
Connect URL: bolt://localhost:7687

Username: neo4j

Thanks for your reply. but question is from Neo4j Desktop not a browser. I have neo4j community server installed on Server XYZ and i have Windows Neo4j Desktop is installed on my laptop. I am not able to access remote graph database which is Server XYZ.

Hi @myrights99

Yes, I connected from Neo4j Desktop not browser like Crome, Safari.

You can access to comment out the listen address in neo4j.conf of neo4j community server.
And restarting neo4j in Server XYZ.

# Network connector configuration

# With default configuration Neo4j only accepts local connections.
# To accept non-local connections, uncomment this line:



And You can connect the server by Neo4j Desktop on your laptop.

Add Database > Connect to Remote DBMS

Database Name: Graph Database
Connect URL: bolt://<Server XYZ IP or name>:7687

This definitely helped. thank you.
