K3S Connection to the server localhost:8080 was refused

I have “3” Photon 3.0 VM’s in my cluster - Master, Node1 and Node 2, ran through the entire install, Master, both nodes, took the TOKEN from the Master and assigned it into the two nodes.

Since I began getting the about erro from the very beginning, "Systemctl stop iptables, and Systemctl disable iptables on all three VM’s just to be sure they were not being blocked in some way. I also added their ip’s and names to the HOST file, and they cal all bing each other and resolve by name - after all that, I am still getting the following error when I run kubectl get nodes from either node or from my Mac - if I run it from the master, I only get the master to show up

What am I missing here?
