Redis Ubuntu 16.04

I have already setup inboud rule to accept port 6379
when I try to connect to the redis server from my local machine using the public ip, I get an error
" No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it"

how could I enable redis to be accessible from outside ?

Have you enabled bind option in conf file to listen on all interfaces, or public interfaces?
Have you restarted the redis service?
Are you sure it's not enabled under unixsocket instead?

Finally check the connection locally, if it works, try using telnet to test the TCP connectivity (not redis itself)

telnet SERVER 6379
