Kibana ElasticSearch issue "Error Could not contact Elasticsearch at http:/address:9200. Please ensure that Elasticsearch is reachable from your system."

Jonathan H
Hey everyone. 

I have installed logstash, elasticsearch and Kibana 3 successfully, however when I ask a member on my team to view kibana he see this "Error Could not contact Elasticsearch at http:/address:9200. Please ensure that Elasticsearch is reachable from your system. " (Please find image attached). 

My understanding was that kibana was the one to query Elasticsearch. Why does the user need access to port 9200? Is there anyway around this issue with out opening the port up?

Regards,
Jonathan Hickey

Because kibana connects from the users desktop to ES.

You can reverse proxy this very easily, there are a few example configs in the KB code to help ad it's worth doing.
