Welcome to the Linux Foundation Forum!

Lab 3.5 Step 6

I have configured my VPC according to the instructions in GPC. When I try to navigate to the public IP and port I get no response. I can ping the public IP just fine. I went into the VM's and selected the allow HTTP and HTTPS boxes but that changed nothing. Any tips for me?

    It works for me. I just went to your IP and port and saw the Welcome to nginx page. Perhaps a different browser or firewall rules on your local system.

  • Thanks! I was VPN'd into work and that was the issue.

  • I am getting not access to that website; my set up

    kubectl get svc
    NAME         TYPE           CLUSTER-IP      EXTERNAL-IP   PORT(S)        AGE
    kubernetes   ClusterIP       <none>        443/TCP        23d
    nginx        LoadBalancer   <pending>     80:31609/TCP   15m

    Not sure what might be the case

    Hi @nicocerquera,

    What command are you running to test access to the web page?


  • I am not running a command directly, instead I am opening a web browser and trying to load the page with the public IP of the node and the port listed for nginx:

    If I wanted to run a command I would use:


    Yet that one is not connecting

  • I ended up using the node IP and that worked very well! Thank you

    Make sure that your instance's security group lets traffic in from the port you want to use. Also, make sure the web server is running and has the right settings.
