Before connecting to your Amazon EC2 instance, you must ensure that the instance’s SSH/RDP port is open to traffic. You must also install an SSH/RDP client on the computer you are accessing your instance from. You will need your Amazon EC2 instance ID and the private key from the key pair you created. For information on how to obtain the private key, see Create a Key Pair.
If you did not authorize ingress for the security group that your instance belongs to, you will not be able to connect to your instance. By default, Amazon EC2 instances do not permit inbound traffic. For more information on authorizing security group ingress, see Authorize Security Group Ingress.
For information on how to connect to your Amazon EC2 instance, go to Connecting to Instances in the Amazon EC2 User Guide.
