Hi Guys, I'M New Here

Hi guys, I'm new here 🙂 I just launched an AWS EC2 t3.large instance with the AMI from the marketplace according to the docs, and the stage of entering the URL with the http://Public DNS IPv4>:8080 does not show the web-ui

But that can be step 2, not step 1 😄

Hi MinuteWalrus85 ,
Welcome 🙂
Did you make sure the new instance has a security group allowing access to port 8080? (Usually, unless otherwise configured, a new EC2 instance will only allow inbound traffic from instances in the same VPC)

I'll look at the security group. Any tips on how to configure it so that it isn't exposed to the entire world, but also not locked to me?

Well, I see you do get the favicon, so something is there... Strange

ok, so now I'm able to see the website, but the gui isn't showing up:

alright, cracking knuckles and... dive into the deep end

Well, in general it's always advisable to only expose the relevant ports (i.e. 8080, 8008 and 8081).
Also, since the Trains Fileserver is not limited (i.e. no credentials are required to upload/download), we recommend only opening access from your (or your company's/office) IP, not from any IP.

Additionally, since you're using AWS, and assuming you have a domain name, you can fairly easily set up a Load balancer (ELB) and use subdomains instead of ports, as well as use HTTPS for safer communication 🙂

sorry, my bad 😛 I accidentally entered into the inbound rules the port 8001 instead of 8008

Can you open the browsers' developer panel and see what calls are being sent over the network?

now it's working!

I did not... 😞 I'm a bit of a newb to the EC2

thank you Jake for the assistance!

Oh, and another thing - if you're opening your server to outside access (and not just limited to your IP), please consider using only the fixed-users mode, so that every access to the server will be password-protected 🙂

so, inbound rules should allow custom TCP for the three ports, 8080, 8001, 8081? what about the outbound rules?
