Hi, I am hosting a Neo4j server on my laptop, and I am trying to access it via an amazon EC2 instance. I am using Neo4j desktop to run the server.
I've configured my server to accept external traffic:
dbms.default_listen_address=0.0.0.0 dbms.connector.bolt.listen_address=0.0.0.0:7687 dbms.connector.http.address=0.0.0.0:7474
I use a reverse ssh from my laptop -> ec2 instance to expose ports 7474 and 7487. I use a reverse ssh from server -> client because my laptop is private and I don't want to port forward from my public IP.
ssh -R7687:localhost:7687 -R7474:localhost:7474 ec2-user@EC2IP
On my EC2 instance, I am using
self.driver = GraphDatabase.driver(bolt://localhost:7687", auth=auth, max_transaction_retry_time=20)to access the database. It fails with error
