Can't connect to Arachni Proxy on EC2 AWS instance

Hello, I'm running arachni with the proxy plugin on an Amazon EC2 instance. This is the command I run:

arachni --plugin=proxy:port=8080,bind_address=machine_IP

On machine IP, I put the IP that I get when running ifconfig on the Amazon Machine. The proxy starts running OK.

I want to access the proxy using my local Firefox browser, so I go to Connection preferences, and I set the Proxy HTTP to the AWS machine global IP address, the one I obtain when running a dig command using the machine FQDN. I set the port to 8080 and that's it.

Then, I try accessing, but I get the "MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_NOT_YET_VALID_CERTIFICATE " error on Firefox. I tried setting my local timezone to UTC (the same in which the Amazon Instance is), but the error keeps happening.

What am I doing wrong?
