Looking for any tipson the AWS Marketplace 2-NIC version just to get some help spinning it up. The instance spins up with CF and the changes to relevant values, but no matter what, Isee the instance/IP but can't connect. If I nmap it, I see the ports open, but connections are refused as though no service is listening. The SGs are set properly, but no amount of fiddling will let me get in to manage the instance and finish confiruing, apply licenses, etc.
What you see from nmap:
PORT STATE SERVICE REASON
22/tcp closed ssh conn-refused
80/tcp closed http conn-refused
443/tcp closed https conn-refused
6667/tcp closed irc conn-refused
Which does indicate that SGs are configured properly, but the "services" running on the instance is not letting me connect. Yes, the CIDR is set to 0.0.0.0/0 for full access. This is kind of frustrating. It must be something simple that is just being overlooked.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Figured it out. Strangeness in the VPC it was configured in was causing odd routing loops a nd thus the connection would go in, but could not get out. Clean VPC fixed it.
Thank you for providing details around the fix.
