Hello, I am having trouble setting up access to the galaxy cloud instance and may have missed something in the tutorial (I am following this one: I am able to launch the instance I can access it through ssh, but when I try to access it through firefox or chrome it just times out. I am using the public DNS provided by amazon I DO add the /cloud I do have the http port added in the security group for "GalaxyWeb" that I set up (I also tried to add https just in case) Would someone be willing to work through this with me? I suspect I have incorrectly set up my security group, but I have tried many versions of the options. I have been through the amazon security faqs and I don't see what the issue could be (other than maybe IPv4 vs IPv6). Any advice or links for further help would be greatly appreciated Thank you!

Colleen; It does sound like something with the security group setting. Could you include a screenshot of what your security group looks like? As a reference, here is mine: Did you also remember to select this security group, and not the default, when starting the image in the console? I sometimes make that mistake and then wonder for a while why I'm having connectivity issues. Hope this helps, Brad

Thank you for the quick answer. Here is a screenshot of my security groups (I have 2 galaxy ones, because I've been trying various options, but neither seem to work). As far as I can tell it looks similar to yours (thanks for that, it makes it easier to check that I typed everything in OK). nt=Screenshot-1.png One difference is that I have been selecting BOTH default and galaxy2 security groups, maybe I should just select only galaxy2, I'll try that next. Looking at it through my ssh, I think I may be missing an even bigger point because it does not seem like cloudman is running There is nothing in the /tmp file except for my userData.yaml (and it looks from various websites that I should have a tmp/cm dir) So maybe I missed a major step in the setup? Thanks again for any advice! Colleen

Hi Brad and All, Some more info (in case it gives you or anyone else any hints as to what I am doing wrong): If I start apache2, I can access the instance through http, so I guess it isn't with my security settings. I get: "It works! This is the default web page for this server. The web server software is running but no content has been added, yet." I am obviously missing the cloudman startup, but I'm not sure what step I skipped that does that part. I see on this page ( that I can specify in the userData.yaml an optional boot_script_name, but it is not clear that I should explicitly include that in the userdata when I launch the instance. Just to be safe I also tried accessing it with just galaxy2 security settings (not also including default). I can still access it by ssh, but no access to it via http. Again if I start apache2, I can access via http, but there is nothing running. If I try to connect via NX it also fails (details provided by NX below) Again, thanks so much for the help with this!

Hi Colleen, Sorry to see you're having trouble. To get some blunt things out of the way, what AMI are you using? Also, are you specifying your user data in the AWS instance request wizard exactly as it's shown on the Galaxy Cloud page (<http:"" admin="" cloud="" userdata=""> )? Since you're logging into your instance, please also check the contents of the file /opt/galaxy/pkg/ This log file the is first entry point for CloudMan on an instance so it should tell us what's happening. Lastly, apache is not being used with Galaxy Cloud so unfortunately that won't help this time around. Enis
