Need help interacting with remote IPFS nodes

I have 3 remote nodes setup on AWS in a cluster with pinning enabled. I would like to interact with the nodes or cluster - uploading, retrieving files etc from a browser with no local node running on my pc. I have seen the documentation for the HTTP API and when i try to do curl it returns back gibberish. Any help would be appreciated.

update: changing the address values to the private IP of the AWS instance made it work
