Frustrated attempt to create my first EC2 instance AND connect to it. Launching it with defaults went fine, but connecting kept timing out, and after going through all the troubleshooting it is still timing out. Stopped, for now.
@jeremycherfas That happens to me sometimes and is usually due to a missing security group rule. I find AWS issues to be mind-bogglingly hard to track down. They write millions of words of documentation but for some reason I can never find the answer I'm looking for.
