FMS16 on Amazon EC2 - 2-Machine Deployment

Hi Everyone -


I'm setting up a 2-machine configuration for Web Direct (i.e., Master + Worker) on Amazon EC2. I've installed Windows Server 2016 for both instances, and am using FileMaker Server 16.


I installed the master machine first, didn't deploy it, installed the worker machine, didn't deploy it, then deployed the master machine (which went fine), then attempted to deploy the worker machine (not so well).


For reference, I am using Elastic IPs and have associated each one with one of the EC2 instances.


Both instances are on the same VPC.


I can connect to the Master machine, but keep getting "Connection Timed Out".


I know I'm getting connected to the Master machine because I'm getting prompted about there being a self-signed SSL certificate there.


I've watched and read so many videos about this my head is swimming. I've opened up all the ports, both in Amazon's security groups and in the Windows Firewall.


Any assistance or guidance anyone can provide?
