I have a website running on a Windows 2008 Server EC2 instance. The website is working fine, but I'm unable to remote-desktop into it.
I have an Elastic IP associated with the instance:
# telnet 999.99.999.999 80 Trying 999.99.999.999... Connected to ec2-999-99-999-999.compute-1.amazonaws.com (999.99.999.999).

Remote Desktop protocol (3389) IS allowed for the instance's security group:
