Getting empty response from server

Hi I've installed elk stack of version 8.5.1. All services are active. But when i try to access curl http://localhost:9200 or publicip:9200 getting empty response error /var/lib/elasticsearch
path.logs: /var/log/elasticsearch
http.port: 9200 true true

# Enable encryption for HTTP API client connections, such as Kibana, Logstash, and Agents
  enabled: true
  keystore.path: certs/http.p12

# Connections are encrypted and require user authentication

You have security enabled, so need to use https, e.g. https://localhost:9200, with authentication.

even that's not working

curl failed to verify the legitimacy of the server and therefore could not
establish a secure connection to it. To learn more about this situation and
how to fix it, please visit the web page mentioned above.

If i false
curl http://localhost:9200 works. but kibana stops working. saying license not available

Run curl with the -k flag and see if that makes a difference.

should i set false or true?

Set it to true. You should IMHO never run Elasticsearch without ecurity enabled.

set it to true. able to curl with -k flag. when i try to access kibana http://ip:5601 getting kibana is not ready from a very long time. and in logs getting this error

how can i use https without a certificate?

this is kibana.yml file

server.port: 5601 ""

#elasticsearch.hosts: ["http://localhost:9200"]

# If your Elasticsearch is protected with basic authentication, these settings provide
# the username and password that the Kibana server uses to perform maintenance on the Kibana
# index at startup. Your Kibana users still need to authenticate with Elasticsearch, which
# is proxied through the Kibana server.
#elasticsearch.username: "elastic"
#elasticsearch.password: "minutus"

after i had installed all services. With these same settings i was able to access kibana. elasticsearch was not accessible. now i can access it using https and -k. but why is kibana giving error? also this is a single node setup

{"service":{"node":{"roles":["background_tasks","ui"]}},"ecs":{"version":"8.4.0"},"@timestamp":"2022-11-17T12:07:42.054+00:00","message":"Unable to retrieve version information from Elasticsearch nodes. getaddrinfo ENOTFOUND 10-0-9-223","log":{"level":"ERROR","logger":"elasticsearch-service"},"process":{"pid":11509},"trace":{"id":"e87ec35cb0890a742ae5eed2dce06019"},"transaction":{"id":"84ec558ca5b502c3"}}

Can u help me with the default config for elasticsearch and kibana? kibana is not able to access elasticsearch getting address not found. i dont have an ssl certificate for this ip. when i curl to elasticsearch ip with -k flag it works. when i access kibana it says server not ready and in logs getting error

"message":"Unable to retrieve version information from Elasticsearch nodes. getaddrinfo ENOTFOUND 10-0-9-223

the ip address that has come by default in kibana for elasticsearch hosts is private ip.
i want to access elasticsearch as well as kibana from ansible playbook
