Unable to ping Tyk-Dashboard ON-PREMISES link in Red Hat Unix system

I have done all the setting of Tyk ON-PREMISES by following the below link


At step 8 when I am trying to open the link in browser but I am getting connection refused error.

For step 6 did you change the domain bind? And is the dashboard service running? Run sudo netstat -tlnp and check

Hi Josh,

  1. Yes at step 6 I have added the domain with system IP

  1. when I checked the netstat -tlnp no Tyk-Dashboard is running, but the above terminal command not showing any error

I would check whther you have correctly passed the values to the configuration file. The tyk_analytics.conf file should be in opt/tyk-dashboard

This value has not populated which is why you cant see the dashboard on netstat - change it to the ip you want the dashboard to listen on, restart dashboard service and check netstat again to see if the service is listening.

Hi Josh,
“/System IP/” --> I have entered my system IP address only

“/HOSTNAME/" --> is my system host name

Is the service listening?

Nope its not listening
