I've been trying to ping an Amazon EC2 Server on the Free Tier.
I created a:
Windows-2008-SP2-i386-Base-2012.01.12 (ami-fed396ac) Description: Microsoft Windows 2008 Datacenter 32-bit AMI provided by Amazon Status: available Platform: Windows Image size: 30 GB Visibility: Public Owner: amazon (206029621532)
and I just can't access to it. I've been trying to ping it, or RDP it, but every attermpt is unsuccessful. To do this I created a new security group called "Pingable" that basically allows ALL TCP, UDP and ICMP traffic to all IP addresses (0.0.0.0/0)(just to test why it wasn't working, but still unsuccessful).
Could you please provide some input on what have I done wrong? I reckon it's something small that I'm missing.
While doing tracert to the PublicDNS address, it hops 17 times successfully, reaches amazon, but then in amazon, after several hops gets lost...
