Not able to access Kong Admin API

Hi,

Setup:
I have Kong Gateway cluster running inside an AWS VPC on EC2 instances. Few commands o/p to verify the installation

[root@kong-api-gw ec2-user]# netstat -ntpl
Active Internet connections (only servers)

Problem: Kong admin API is not accessible from any machine in the same VPC or even in the same subnet.
[devtest@bastion ~] telnet <kong-api-gw-ip> 8001 Trying <kong-api-gw-ip>... telnet: connect to address <kong-api-gw-ip>: Connection refused [sgarg@bastion ~] curl http://:8001
curl: (7) Failed to connect to port 8001: Connection refused
[devtest@bastion ~]$

Please note that all traffic is allowed between the machines in this VPC.

Kindly suggest how to access Kong admin API from outside Kong Gateway Server

Thanks,

configuration problem. check admin_listen configurations

Thanks for your reply.

I have below config already applied explicitly in kong.conf for admin_listen

admin_listen = 127.0.0.1:8001 reuseport backlog=16384, 127.0.0.1:8444 http2 ssl reuseport backlog=16384

still not able to access the kong server on 8001 or 8444 from other machines with all traffic allowed.

Thanks,
Saurabh

@sgarg 127.0.0.1 is the loopback interface and only accessible from the local machine. Either put in the IP of the interface to listen on or simply use 0.0.0.0 to bind to all interfaces. For example, change the admin_listen line to:

admin_listen = 0.0.0.0:8001 reuseport backlog=16384, 0.0.0.0:8444 http2 ssl reuseport backlog=16384

Thanks @ross for your response. It helped me fix the problem. Much appreciated!
