EC2 Web server not accessible from desktop but accessible from mobile

0

Hi,

I started a web server on EC2 following the basic instruction on AWS website. The web page (index.html) since yesterday is not accessible through the browser (chrome & edge) but is accessible from my mobile. I have not made any changes to my desktop settings which should affect this.

Any pointers on how to investigate this would be great?

Regards,

  • What is the error you are seeing in the browser? How are you accessing the webspage? Using IP or the hostname? if you are using hostname try to see if the hostname is resolving to correct IP from the desktop, you can do the ping to check the resolution.

  1. Check whether there are any changes to Firewall and Network Protection rules / configuration on your Desktop.
  2. Check the Router settings connecting the desktop to Internet.
  3. Check the Browser settings.

Thanks for your response. This was a http vs https issue - http link was working whereas https was not working. On desktop I was directly clicking the URL from EC2 console whereas on mobile I was editing server details in a previous http URL. Hence the difference.
