How to access NiFi UI installed on an AWS ec2 windows instance from local machine>

How to access NiFi UI installed on an AWS ec2 windows instance from local machine>

New Contributor

I have installed the binaries of Apache NiFi 1.3.0 on an AWS Windows 2012 ec2 instance. In the security groups, I have allowed TCP connection on port 8080. However, I am still unable to access the NiFi UI from my local machine using the Public DNS of the instance. I have tried using - http://<public DNS>:8080/nifi

Any help would be appreciated.

Two things to check

1. Is nifi runing on port 8080?

2. Do you have any firewall rules for your ec2 instance that is blocking outside access?

@rbiswas Thanks for your response.

1. Yes, nifi is running on port 8080. (Verification - Able to access nifi inside the instance by navigating to localhost:8080/nifi)

2. I have opened up port 8080 in the security groups. Screenshot below -

Were you ever able to fix this? Currently trying to do the same thing using Nifi v1.5.
