I am new to IPFS.According to the documentation, i downloaded the ipfs and put the folder in the environment variable.
I then ran “ipfs init”.
C:\Users\mitesh pandey>ipfs init initializing IPFS node at C:\Users\mitesh pandey\.ipfs generating 2048-bit RSA keypair...done peer identity: QmQwkkF3rgEaDk24BacYYRTdmWwavgnMehbaDwbbJqgnZ7 to get started, enter: ipfs cat /ipfs/QmS4ustL54uo8FzR9455qaxZwuMiUhyvMcX9Ba8nUH4uVv/readme
Then I ran ipfs daemon command and i got the following:

Now when i try to visit http://127.0.0.1:5001/webui
It runs forever telling waiting for 127.0.0.1
Also when i try to run ipfs swarm peers , I get empty.
I searched this issue online and i found the problem in the github issue but didn’t find the solution.
Note: I have disabled my antivirus.
Also i am also on the network of a university. I am currently residing in the university dorm.
