Why doesn't the Splunk web Port 8001 doesn't work in the browser?

Path Finder

I have installed splunk in EC2(ubuntu) and started Splunk.

I have changed web.conf to
cat /splunk/splunk/etc/system/local/web.conf

httpport = 8001

and restarted

But I am not able to see Splunk web port in the browser

Please help me with this

Sounds like your EC2 security group needs to allow the port outbound to your client system. Basically, sounds like firewall stuff.
