Open Ports on the Firewall for AWS Elemental Server Nodes

You can enable or disable the firewall. We recommend that your nodes always be installed behind a customer firewall on a private network, regardless of if the individual firewall is enabled on each node. The node firewall is enabled by default.

When the node firewall is enabled, the installer configures the ports that must be open for incoming and outgoing traffic for each node. Use the following procedure to open more ports if you need them.

To open ports on the node firewall

  1. On the AWS Elemental Server web interface, go to the Settings page and choose Firewall.

    You must turn on the node firewall before you can make any changes to the ports.

  2. In the Firewall Settings, choose Firewall On.

  3. (Optional) To enable a port, choose Accept for that port.

  4. (Optional) To add a new port, complete the fields in the Add Incoming Port section.

  5. When you're done, choose Save.
