iPXE VMs unreachable (perhaps never booting)

edited June 2014 in Help
I've followed the directions here: https://coreos.com/docs/running-coreos/cloud-providers/vultr/
for setting up a CoreOS VM on Vultr using iPXE script. Everything appears (from the Vultr UI) to work okay, but it is impossible to ssh to the new VM. (I've tried this on different networks, so I'm pretty sure it's not my network.)

Here is my script. I've carefully examined the syntax and I'm quite sure there are no errors, but don't take my word for it.

The response is always something like this:

$ ssh -i ~/.ssh/id_vultr_rsa core@
ssh: connect to host port 22: Operation timed out

  • Have you taken a look at your VMs console? iPXE is displaying an error, with a link to http://ipxe.org/err/3c0920 . The ultimate cause of the error is you're trying to boot over https. The version of iPXE that's currently in use does not support https.

    If you switch to an unencrypted url, this should work properly.

    Unfortunately, iPXE doesn't have a full SSL stack, so it's not possible for us to allow booting from arbitrary HTTPS hosts.
