Dataiku in Ubuntu instance in Google Cloud Platform is not working

Dataiku in Ubuntu instance in Google Cloud Platform is not working

Hi, 



I am trying to install DSS on ubuntu instance in GCP. I followed this "install Documentation page" and everything went well. I was able to start DSS from command line. However, when i try to connect DSS in web browser, i get "This site can’t be reached" error. 



I entered the following address:



http://HOSTNAME:11000  where HOSTNAME is the external ip of GCP instance and Port is 11000.



Why am I not able to connect to DSS in web browser and what do i have to do different in Google Cloud Platform



Below is the image, i got when the installation was done. I was able to start DSS.



 





Regards, 



Sam

Hi 



 



This looks like a firewall issue to me. it's required to open DSS port  for external sources as 



You can quickly open it from you GCP Console  by : 



- Going to your VM in Google compute engine and open your instance details



- edit your VM  and add a tag dedicated to DSS (you will need it to define network rules )  for example  dku-dss  and save. 



-  In your instance details , from the network interface section, open your network interface 



- add the firewall  rule that allows  port 11000 from your IP address , and  set the tag dku-dss as target for your rule  and save it. 



If you still can't access to DSS, check also your VM local firewall (ufw by default )  if this one is  active , you will have to allow DSS port  with this command:




sudo ufw allow 11000


 



Note that if you use a regular ssh client  to access your machine you can also create a  tunnel to access  your DSS for testing purpose . from your terminal you would have to run




ssh user@$yourGCPmachiner -L 11000:localhost:11000


Once your connection is established you can go to your browser and  access to DSS using  url http://localhost:11000. 



Beware that the recommended action is to open your GCP  firewall and your virtual machine firewall.
