Can't open Canvas in AWS EC2 instance

User 2662 | 11/23/2015, 7:36:34 PM

When I execute it shows following :

Canvas is accessible via web browser at the URL: http://localhost:52566/index.html

Opening Canvas in default web browser.

I try to follow the above address but its not accessible.I also tried to replace localhost with my public IP of the aws instance,but still no success.

I also followed this link : and found the port canvas is running on (44000) but I don't know how/where to run this command --

ssh -L <port>:localhost:<port> remote.server

as mentioned in the post linked above

Hi Pradeep,

Are you using ipython notebook by any chance? If so, can you please run graphlab.canvas.set_target('ipynb').

Let me know how that works. This will avoid the need to tunnel into your host machine.

Charlie, set_target works if I don't want to open a new window. can you suggest a way out for accessing URL? (I am using GraphLab on AWS) Thanks.

Yes, it is possible.

  1. use settarget('headless', port=SOMEPORT)
  2. make sure SOME_PORT is open (tcp) in the security rule

@Jay Gu i edited security group inbound rule and added another port . Custom TCP Rule , TCP <port> 50000 source anywhere. but it is still not working. i even tried to telnet PUBLIC IP with this port. that is also not working... Thanks
