Cannot Get REST API Clients to See Server on Win 8
I downloaded ElasticSearch (ES) 1.3.2 and Java jre1.8.0_20 and attempted to follow the ES tutorial. I am new to ES. I installed ES on my Windows 8.1 x64 laptop and it appears that the server is running in the prompt window. I also set up JAVA_HOME. However, when I attempt to run the simple tutorials under either Chrome Sense or Mozilla, I get server errors (e.g. status 0). I also attempted to run service install and service start (x64) from the ES directory and both failed. How can I get the clients to see the server and make service operate properly?
