Qlik Sense on AWS

QS is installed on AWS EC2 instance and accessible via a local browser.

However, after configuring all the stuff (Stream security, AWS Security Group, Windows FW on the EC2 instance) I fail to access the Hub or any Stream from a browser of a remote PC/Laptop.

"Site Cannot Be Reached"  meaning that access is blocked before reaching Qlik Sense.

RDP works, Ping works. Any way to isolate the failure point?

Thx

Re: Qlik Sense on AWS

Did you white list the IP address, public DNS and public Domain of your EC2 in the QMC?

You can find the host white list under virtual proxies > advanced.

Thx.

No, I did not. But, seems that, for some reason, the Windows FW drops all TCP/443 inbound packets. Checking this.

Re White-List: Should I add the EC2 Instance Private-IP Address? Where do I find the relevant DNS?

Re: Qlik Sense on AWS

You should add the public IP (the IP-address you use to connect to your EC2 from the outside).

You can find all this in your instance description on AWS.

Added the Public IP (there was no option to add Domain or DNS) but still getting

This site can’t be reached

Looking at windows FW logs it seems the FW is blocking  traffic: 2018-10-31 09:54:08 DROP TCP 77.x.x.x  172.30.1.110 58837 443 52 S 2608940108 0 64240 - - - RECEIVE

Even though the FW rule is set to allow inbound 443

Odd..
