Has anyone successfully setup jekyll using WSL?

I’ve been trying to setup a development environment in Windows 10 using the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) following the documentation. All is well but Chrome responds with This site can’t be reached, refused to connect.

netstat -a -q -n | findstr ":8000" 
TCP              BOUND

Does this have to do with this issue: Issue with WSL listening to TCP ports

If so, hopefully it’s fixed by Build 17046
