Embedded eventstore and browser

Here’s the code I’m using in a wpf app to test the embedded EventStore and client.
It all works perfectly. I was unable to “see” the eventstore by directing my browser to “http://localhost:2113”, instead seeing a “localhost refused to connect” message.

Should I be able to view the embedded eventstore from the browser? If not, is there a way to enable it?
