See for information. Note that if the node.js application you are  trying to debug is running on a different host, you need to set up a  proxy that ensures port forwarding on the Node.js server (see, for example). This is necessary because node.js debugging is only listening on localhost.

The proxy can be used as follows:
$: node tcpproxy.js 8585 5858
8585 here is the 'exposed' port that Webstorm will connect to (you can   make this what you wish). You are directing traffic that is coming in  on  8585 to 5858 (the local debugging port). Ensure 8585 is open on  your  firewall if you have one. You have to specify this 'exposed' port  in  your WebStorm run configuration as a debug port
