Filebeat dashboards are not loaded in kibana - Running on AWS

I am running 3 nodes in AWS: 1 master and 2 data nodes for Elasticsearch. I installed kibana fine with no issues. Now I'm running into an issue with setting up filebeat dashboard in Kibana. Getting the following error

root@ip-172-31-68-160:~# filebeat setup

Overwriting ILM policy is disabled. Set setup.ilm.overwrite: true for enabling.

Index setup finished.

Loading dashboards (Kibana must be running and reachable)

Exiting: error connecting to Kibana: fail to get the Kibana version: HTTP GET request to fails: fail to execute the HTTP GET request: Get "": context deadline exceeded (Client.Timeout exceeded while awaiting headers). Response: .

I can hit the URL http://my public ip/api/status fine though but for some reason the filebeat setup is failing.

Is the IP address right in your configuration?

Your prompt shows that the private IP of your machine is, but your error shows that it is trying to reach the private IP

Can you share your filebeat.yml and kibana.yml files?

Yaaas!! It was a typo. I caught it too. Thanks !

Is that their service, or on EC2.

That's not ideal if that is only 1 master eligible node, as you have no quorum.
