EC2 Instance - Remote Console issue

I have installed Neo4J community edition v.3.5.1.

I can bring up the remote console however I receive error:
"websocket connection to failed establishing a tunnel via proxy server failed."

This is installed on a RHEL7 AWS EC2 instance and I'm stuck on the error when trying to sign in.

Did you open the ports 7474, 7473, 7687 in your security group?

And made the instance in the config listen on all interfaces, not just the loopback interface?

Also, yes ports are listening...

Have you had a look here? Many common problems addressed.

Some extra details would help. Are you connecting to the console by 7474 or 7473? Do you have an SSL cert?
