Installation Help - Connection Refused

I am brand new to GrayLog. I am installing in a test environment. Installed MongoDB, ElasticSearch, and then GrayLog per the instructions. Installed on Ubuntu.

Modified the server.conf as indicated and set the admin password.

Can anyone please point me in the right direction?
