Remotely Access Apache NiFi (v1.11.4)

Remotely Access Apache NiFi (v1.11.4)

New Contributor

I am running Apache NiFi (version1.11.4) on my local machine say on port (8090). It runs & is working good on my machine. This is normal setup without registry/certificate/LDAPS/security.

I want to access this NiFi on other machine running with in the private Network. For this i enabled this 8090 port on my machine's firewall (as inbound rule with TCP)

But not able to access NiFi remotely

I tested both the cases (with default port and custom post):

Case 1: on my local machine NiFi is running on port 8080, i setup firewall inbound rule also on port 8080 Other member should be able to access my NiFi instance remotely on port 8080.

nifi.web.http.host=MY_HOST_NAME 
nifi.web.http.port=8080 

Case 2: On server machine NiFI is running on port 8090, i setup firewall inbound rule also on port 8090 Other member should be able to access this NiFi instance remotely on port 8090.

nifi.web.http.host=MY_HOST_NAME 
nifi.web.http.port=8090

nifi.web.war.directory=./lib
nifi.web.http.host=MY_HOST_NAME
nifi.web.http.port=8080
