I'm trying to install latest version of puppet from tar ball on an EC2 instance. The steps I followed are:

-Launch a RHEL7 instance. Assign an Elastic IP address. Create a record set on Route 53 using the elastic IP.

-The security group allows all incoming traffic to the instance. No firewalld/iptables installed.

-I'm able to access the Web UI on port 3000 for installation. After the installation proceeds for some time, The error shows up and the installation is aborted

Please help me understand what is causing this problem and help me solve it.

All along the installation I was using a t2.micro with 1GB memory from free tier usage. But, when I used a medium instance with 4GB memory the installation went through with out any errors. But, the error "connection refused to port" did not make me think that it was a memory issue. I think that some service has to run on port 4433 for the installation to continue, since there is no memory available the corresponding service or process is not launched. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Hey !! How did you resolve this issue.? I also tried adding more RAM. My RAM was 2 Gig only then I added 2 more Gigs. But no luck. Still getting that error.
