AWS Ubuntu port 8090 refused to connect

Hi guys

I have just installed Confluence on an AWS Instance:

Ubuntu

Gone through the steps and Confluence is running, however I can't access:

on http://...amazonaws.com:8090

Get the message refused to connect.

Can open up tomcat on 8080

Have tried:

- Ensuring port 8090 is open on AWS settings and on Ubuntu firewall.

- turning off Ubuntu firewall

- uninstalling / reinstalling confluence

- configuring Confluence to use another port: 8099

- uninstalling / reinstalling tomcat

- through putty, opening up firefox on the AWS instance and going to http://localhost:8090 and http://localhost:8099

No luck.

Any pointers?

Have also tried:

Creating a new instance on AWS using AWS Linux.  Same issue.

As well as:

- followed these steps: http://bytesoap.com/2014/confluence-jira-nginx-ubuntu

Also from https://confluence.atlassian.com/confkb/running-confluence-with-firewall-on-linux-693896826.html

iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 8090 -j ACCEPT
iptables -I FORWARD -p tcp --dport 8090 -j ACCEPT
iptables -P OUTPUT ACCEPT

With a reboot.

No luck opening with port 8090 or 8099
