Jenkins Amin URL

 

By default, your Jenkins runs at http://localhost:8080/. This can be changed by editing jenkins.xml, which is located in the installation directory (C:\Program Files (x86)\Jenkins). This file is also the place to change other boot configuration parameters, such as JVM options, HTTPS setup, etc.

 

There are a few ways to access the Jenkins login page, either locally on the server by accessing http://localhost:8080

 

Or by the servers internal DNS host name on your internal network: http://dnshostname:8080

 

Or by using the public AWS public IP/DNS Name. 

Jenkins Firewall Ports

 

The Jenkins Windows AWS image comes with port 8080 configured to allow you to access the admin URL both internally and externally.

 

Depending on what you will be using the Jenkins server for, you’ll need to confirm if any firewall ports will need to be open in order for the Jenkins server to reach any resources in your environment.

 

To setup AWS firewall rules refer to – AWS Security Groups
