As an operating system option I am testing the installation of the Ignition Edge package onto a CentOs operating system.
Ver Edge - 8.01
Ver CentOs - 7.6.1010
Oracle Java - 12.0.1
The Ignition service is status reporting as Running with the wrapper service Started and Java Started.
However, I cannot see the Ignition start page when I try to enter it remotely. I started with a bare bones CentOS installation and I am wondering if there is some additional components that I need to add.
Anyone who has tried this before, I would love to hear from you.
CentOS may have installed or automatically configured a default firewall that’s not allowing traffic to port 8088 - that’s where I would start looking.
As an aside, you don’t need to have Oracle (or any other Java) manually installed - Ignition 8 automatically includes a Java 11 runtime from Azul systems with the installer.
Sadly, this did not correct the issue.
I was able to resolve the issue, I had to add not only the port 8088/tcp, but also add services http and https.
sudo firewall-cmd --zone=public --add-port=8043/tcp --permanent
sudo firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-service=http --add-service=https
My ethernet port on the computer is in the public area.
