Accessing Splunk Web installed on EC2 instance from Internet

Super Champion

I have installed Splunk Enterprise in AWS for test purposes (Splunk 6.2x) . Installation was smooth and internal access working perfectly.
Though Splunk put forward internal address while it started ("http://ip-172-31-40-50:8000") , i have tried accessing it using external IP (eg 54.152.7.160)
External Access didn't work http://54.152.7.161:8000/

I have tried changing VPC entries, Network Inbound Traffic to allow 8000 from any source (in Default as well as in custom rule)

But still it is not working.
ANy idea how to get Splunk working externally in AWS?

Cheers

Found the issue. The issue was because I didn't enable "Security Group" settings. in https://console.aws.amazon.com/ec2/v2/home

So inorder to access Custom Port externally..

Security Groups -> Create (or modify) security group -> Inbound

Type= Custom,Protocol=TCP,Port=8000 , Source=0.0.0.0/0
