Lab 6 - Unable to reach the service externally

In lab 6, i was able to launch container application but i can not reach it externally. note, i am using an AWS EC2 instance.

:~/labsys/lab6$ sudo docker ps CONTAINER ID IMAGE COMMAND CREATED STATUS PORTS NAMES 779c4a4dbf87 gcr.io/google-samples/gb-frontend:v4 "apache2-foreground" About an hour ago Up About an hour 0.0.0.0:49156->80/tcp, :::49156->80/tcp guestbook 49a6ee4a375a k8s.gcr.io/redis:e2e "redis-server /etc/r…" About an hour ago Up About an hour 0.0.0.0:49155->6379/tcp, :::49155->6379/tcp guestbook-db 6ad849e8a545 wordpress "docker-entrypoint.s…" About an hour ago Up About an hour 0.0.0.0:49154->80/tcp, :::49154->80/tcp wordpress 7bb06b131e21 mariadb "docker-entrypoint.s…" About an hour ago Up About an hour 3306/tcp wordpress-db 3c9ea5b1292b httpd:2.4 "httpd-foreground" 37 hours ago Up 37 hours 80/tcp, 0.0.0.0:49153->8080/tcp, :::49153->8080/tcp apache-cont

when working on these step:
The Guestbook frontend is mapped to port 49156 on the host machine, which points to port 80 on the container. The WordPress frontend is mapped to port 49154 , which maps to port 80 of its own container. Your resulting ports may var y, so moving for ward be sure to select the ports that are shown in your terminal.

In a browser on either the local machine or the host machine, connect to each frontend using http://<VM External IP>:<Wordpress Container Port> and http://<VM External IP>:<Guestbook Container Port> to access WordPress and the Guestbook respectively.

but when i try to reach it thru browser, i get this:

  • Which IP address are you trying to use? I was able to replicate the steps on AWS using the external IP (the one I use to SSH) rather than the local IP address.

    Also, can you repost the output of your sudo docker ps command in a code block? I think I might see an inconsistency but it's hard to tell from the current formatting.

  • In this case your guestbook should be listening at port 49159 and wordpress should be at 49157 on the SSH ip address. Another thing to check would be whether the security group for the AWS machines is allowing traffic to those ports.

    When I run it, this is my output:

    ~$ sudo docker ps

    In my case, my guestbook is available at 49155 and wordpress at 49153. My security group has all of those ports open.

    Do you mind please sharing the AWS SG configs for those ports? I don't need to see your IP, just the SG Configs for those specific ports. My current EC2 does not have an External IP so i had to attach an Elastic IP to it. I configured the instance to one of the port for testing but it didn't work.
