Cannot Access UEC Cloud Server from Outside Network
Posted on 2009-12-28
We are in the early stages of doing a test deployment of the new Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud software, based on the Eucalpytus software, for possible use in our server environment.
I have successfully installed a cluster controller machine and one node. From inside our internal network using our private IP addresses (e.g. 192.168.x.x), I can access the web administration interface on the controller just fine, and I can also use SSH to access the console/command line on the controller. However, when I attempt to access either of these services from outside our local network, the connections simply time out.
I have verified that our firewall (a Cisco PIX 515E) is properly configured to allow access on the necessary ports and the proper external IP, to properly forward to the correct machine, etc. Also, a traceroute conducted using our firewall management software verifies that packets are allowed through and reach the destination properly.
Can anyone think of a reason these connections would not be working? Does UEC by default have some sort of firewall or access restrictions that would prevent access from an outside network? Are there any additional settings I need to tweak?
Any help would be most appreciated.
