Issue with adding nodes to cluster

Hi all,
I have 2 EC2 Windows instances running with Elasticsearch 5.5.1 and I want to connect them into a cluster, but I'm having trouble having them find eachother. Here are their YMLs: mycluster nodeA
node.master: true true  ip1
http.port: 9200 [ip1, ip2] mycluster nodeB
node.master: true true  ip2
http.port: 9200 [ip1, ip2]

Their IPs are set to the assigned private EC2 IP addresses. I have tried using public IPs as well.

AWS security groups for the instances have been set up to include IPs from anywhere. Their respective IPs return responses when pinged.

I have also tried the EC2 discovery plugin. Both have that plugin installed and are included in an AWS group policy that corresponds to my AWS credentials. The YML looks like this:

discovery.type: ec2
discovery.ec2.groups: mygroup
discovery.zen.hosts_provider: ec2 mykey myotherkey

Saw this and followed very closely:

Any help is appreciated!

What do the logs show?

Hi @warkolm,

Both logs are like this, with different node names and ips obviously. Also checked both VPC and subnet, they are all the same for the instances. They can ping eachother's private IP.
