I work for a company that makes mobile apps. We work alongside another company that makes a device. Both of our companies are working for the same client (this is how we are associated, the app and device work together). Just so you understand the context.
The company that makes the device told us they installed a Mender client on it and asked us to set up a Mender server.
Currently, I’m following the instructions to setup a Mender server. And I’m unsure about the following prerequisite :
- Allocated DNS names for the Mender API Gateway and the Mender Storage Proxy (for purpose of the guide, it is assumed that you own the domains
s3.example.com) that resolve to the public IP of current host on the devices.
I’m unsure what it means that the DNS resolves “to the public IP of current host on the devices”. I did setup an ec2 instance and enabled the ports 443 and 9000 as written. Just to be sure, the “public IP of current host on the device” has nothing to do with the IP of the ec2 right? Is this something that has to with the device itself? I do have access to the domain name provider’s account and can modify settings there. I don’t have any access to the device, so that’s why I ask here to understand it better when I ask the other company for this. Thanks for your time
