Please don't do that. Don't point the internet at your database. Have them communicate amongst each other on internal ips and route the public through a proxy / middleware.

I am used to Macs and Windows but have now set up an Ubuntu 14.04LTS server on my home network. I have 5 fixed IP addresses so the server has its own external address. I have opened port 8098 on my router to point at the server and checked that ufw isn't running. I have tested with it running ufw and with  'allow 8098' applied. I still cannot connect to Riak. On the same computer I get a pong back to a ping so Riak seems to be OK.
