Remote iex session returning "does not export" error


First time posting on here so please bear with me! I’ve been a lurker for a while and the forum has been really useful debugging various issues as well as understanding the design philosophy of Elixir.

I’m trying to run a local iex session connected to our dev server. My ultimate goal is to get the observer running locally which is connected to a remote enviroment.

I have forwarded my local 4369 port to the one running on the machine. This seems to be successful. When I run

epmd -name's 

I get back

epmd: up and running on port 4369 with data:
name my-app at port 44102

However, when i try to connect iex to my-app

iex --name my-app@  --cookie ./my_big_cookie  --remsh

I get back

{fatal,error,module,ex,"does not export",boot,"/1"}

I’ve googled the error message and it doesn’t come back with any messages. My guess is there is some setting that I need to change on my remote machine?

Thanks for any help in advance,
