I have installed mongoDB on a redhat virtual machine on EC2.
The server is running perfectly locally, I can connect and execute commands, etc. Now, I tried connecting remotely from another virtual machine on EC2 but I can't get to connect regardless how much I'm trying. At first I thought it was a problem of security groups, so I tried enabling all ports from within the group (both virtual machines belong to the same secirity groups) I also enabled connections in the iptables file (and yes, restarted the service) but it still doesn't work... Any ideas on what the problem could be?
the error I get is:
MongoDB shell version: 2.0.2 connecting to: ec2-XXXX.eu-west-1.compute.amazonaws.com/test Thu Jan 5 13:55:32 Error: couldn't connect to server ec2-XXXX.eu-west-1.compute.amazonaws.com shell/mongo.js:86 exception: connect failed
Thank in advance.
Regarding the "bind_ip" setting, well.. there is no default value for that, I mean there even is no bind_ip line on the mongodb.conf, by default. I was probably expecting something like bind_ip = 127.0.0.1 so that I could comment it out, but it wasn't there, so I tried with bind_ip = 0.0.0.0 but still, it's not working either.
