Webpack - Hot reloading works on dev server but not backend server

Trying to get live reloading to work. Basically using the gearon-transform-boilerplate: https://github.com/gaearon/react-transform-boilerplate

When I go to the dev server localhost:3000, i get live reloading

When I go to my backend server, and load the src data from the dev server ie:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://localhost:3000/static/bundle.js"></script>

The reactjs page loads properly, but I get no hot reloading.(Which means when I change the components, I have to refresh the page to see the change)

How is this supposed to work? How do I get the backend server to essentially refresh the page when the src changes?

Well, the live reloading works while the devServer.js server it's running and you are in the port in which it's working because it creates some kind of endpoints only available for that port, basically without the dev-server or running out of the port it's not going to work.
