Problem with setting up the kibana dashboards on remote server

Hi all,

As I recently started to use ES, I had the following problem:

On one server the Elasticsearch and Packetbeat are installed and I have locally installed Kibana on a laptop for creating visualizations.
When I try to set up the dashboards of Packetbeat for Kibana with the command:

packetbeat setup --dashboards

the following error is occurred:

Exiting: fail to create the Kibana loader: Error creating Kibana client: Error c reating Kibana client: fail to get the Kibana version: HTTP GET request to /api/ status fails: fail to execute the HTTP GET request: Get http://laptop_ip:56 01/api/status: net/http: request canceled while waiting for connection (Client.T imeout exceeded while awaiting headers). Response: .

Is there any who came across with this problem?

Thanks in advance.!

It might be easiest to copy the packetbeat.yml configuration from the server to the laptop, and install packetbeat on the laptop, too. Then run the setup command there. Otherwise, ensure that the packetbeat running on the server has actually network access through any firewall (including on the laptop) to the Kibana instance running there.

The setting in question is
