I have a basic (small type) windows server 2008 instance running on amazon ec2. I've installed WAMP server on to it, and have also loaded my application. I did this using Remote desktop Connection from my windows machine. I'm able to run my application locally on the instance, however when I try to access it using the public DNS given to it by amazon, from my browser, I'm unable to do so, I end up getting a request timed out error.
My instance has a security group that is configured to allow HTTP, HTTPS, RDP, SSH and SMTP requests on different ports. In fact I have the exact same security group as the one used in this blog, http://howto.opml.org/dave/ec2/
I did almost everything same as the blog, except for using a different Amazon Machine Image. I've tried pinging the address but that doesn't seem to work either. I get a request timed out error both times
This is my first time using amazon ec2, and i can't figure out what I'm doing wrong here
