Remote access to cockroach db on ec2

I created a cluster of three nodes, and they look good in cockroach console, and I can connect to any database through “coakroach sql” from other ec2 instances which are on the same AWS subnet as cokroach nodes.

However, I can’t connect to them from internet through their Elastic IPs of these ec2 cockroach nodes. Why?

Thanks for the help.

Hey @gao-jian!

Have you set the node’s security group allow communication on port 26257 from external IPs?



The reason is the outbound ports are not open in the network, including 26257. I changed it to 8000 and it is working now.


Great, glad you were able to get it working!
