Unable to Curl my Elastic search from other machines


I'm Unable to "curl http://myhostname:9200/_nodes/process?pretty" ?

But curl with localhost works .

curl http://localhost:9200/_nodes/process?pretty
"cluster_name" : "elasticsearch",
"nodes" : {
"teYvg6IQQgSSP9GuiI-aow" : {
"name" : "Cardinal",
"transport_address" : "",
"host" : "",
"ip" : "",
"version" : "2.2.0",
"build" : "8ff36d1",
"http_address" : "",
"process" : {
"refresh_interval_in_millis" : 1000,
"id" : 36615,
"mlockall" : false

Please find my elasticsearch yml .

======================== Elasticsearch Configuration =========================

NOTE: Elasticsearch comes with reasonable defaults for most settings.

Before you set out to tweak and tune the configuration, make sure you

understand what are you trying to accomplish and the consequences.

The primary way of configuring a node is via this file. This template lists

the most important settings you may want to configure for a production cluster.

Please see the documentation for further information on configuration options:


---------------------------------- Cluster -----------------------------------

Use a descriptive name for your cluster:

cluster.name: my-application

------------------------------------ Node ------------------------------------

Use a descriptive name for the node:

node.name: node-1

Add custom attributes to the node:

node.rack: r1

----------------------------------- Paths ------------------------------------

Path to directory where to store the data (separate multiple locations by comma):

path.data: /path/to/data

Path to log files:

path.logs: /path/to/logs

----------------------------------- Memory -----------------------------------

Lock the memory on startup:

bootstrap.mlockall: true

Make sure that the ES_HEAP_SIZE environment variable is set to about half the memory

available on the system and that the owner of the process is allowed to use this limit.

Elasticsearch performs poorly when the system is swapping the memory.

---------------------------------- Network -----------------------------------

Set the bind address to a specific IP (IPv4 or IPv6):


Set a custom port for HTTP:

http.port: 9200

For more information, see the documentation at:


--------------------------------- Discovery ----------------------------------

Pass an initial list of hosts to perform discovery when new node is started:

The default list of hosts is ["", "[::1]"]

discovery.zen.ping.unicast.hosts: ["host1", "host2"]

Prevent the "split brain" by configuring the majority of nodes (total number of nodes / 2 + 1):

discovery.zen.minimum_master_nodes: 3

For more information, see the documentation at:


---------------------------------- Gateway -----------------------------------

Block initial recovery after a full cluster restart until N nodes are started:

gateway.recover_after_nodes: 3

For more information, see the documentation at:


---------------------------------- Various -----------------------------------

Disable starting multiple nodes on a single system:

node.max_local_storage_nodes: 1

Require explicit names when deleting indices:

action.destructive_requires_name: true

It'd help if you correctly formatted your config, use the </> button for that.

However it looks like network.host is not being applied correctly. Why is hard to say unless you can format things.

Hi ,

This fixed my adding the IP in the network.host
