I am new to hyper ledger and trying to set up a private block chain network with clique as consensus protocol. I am deploying it on a AWS Ec2 Instance.

Followed these steps and initiated a boot node and another node


boot node

/home/ubuntu/hyperledger/besu-21.10.8/bin/besu --data-path=data --genesis-file=/home/ubuntu/nodeInfo/conf/cliqueGenesis.json --network-id 123 --rpc-http-enabled --rpc-http-api=ETH,NET,CLIQUE --host-allowlist="*" --rpc-http-cors-origins="all" --rpc-http-host= --p2p-host=

another node

/home/ubuntu/hyperledger/besu-21.10.8/bin/besu --data-path=data --genesis-file=/home/ubuntu/nodeInfo/conf/cliqueGenesis.json --bootnodes=enode://d0ec80fc5af05fd7700c5c7b2fa9e268d93c3bc641efe917791b8da3baede296c16a313f6b6b27d4ccc3c267f507ca4acb17271ebace64633635e755edec882c@ --network-id 123 --p2p-port=30305 --rpc-http-enabled --rpc-http-api=ETH,NET,CLIQUE --host-whitelist="*" --rpc-http-cors-origins="all" --rpc-http-port=8547

when we tried to add this network to metamask ,we got the CORS Exception

Rpc Url: http://NodepublicIp:8545 , http://NodepublicIp:8546 and http://NodepublicIp:8547

I have opened relevant ports 8545 to 8547 for communication on Ec2.

Provide us some pointers to debug this issue.

Thanks in advance

You say you have opened ports 8545 to 8547 but have you done the same for ports 30303 to 30305? I'm not sure if this matters when using a single EC2 instance though.
