"This site can't be reached" when trying to access Kibana

I am getting the following message in Chrome when I try to connect to Kibana by entering my public IP address followed by :5601
e.g. (where is replaced with my VM's public IP address)

This site can’t be reached
[MY VM'S PUBLIC IP ADDRESS HERE] refused to connect.
Search Google for 5601

Just an FYI: I am able to successfully get a proper response (for elastic search) when entering in Chrome: (where is replaced with my VM's public IP address)

My kibana.yml file (in /etc/kibana/) has the following entries:

server.port: 5601
server.host: "" #where is replaced with my VM's public IP address)
elasticsearch.url: "" #where is replaced with my VM's public IP address)
elasticsearch.preserveHost: true
kibana.index: ".kibana"
xpack.security.enabled: false
elasticsearch.username: "kibana"
elasticsearch.password: "kibanapassword"

When I run "systemctl status kibana.service" I see that kibana is running successfully:

● kibana.service - Kibana

So..... What could I be missing?



Kibana can have an especially slow startup (on the order of minutes) if a configuration change requires it to rebundle.

Do you see anything interesting in journalctl -u kibana.service?
