I created a new ec2 ubuntu instance. I can't connect to the instance, all I get is connection timed out when I try to connect. I can't ping the instance either. If I try to add new security rules in the amazon ec2 dashboard I cannot save them (the save button will not become active).
I may be using an ami that doesn't work with the free instance (from some things I have read that can be a problem) but I can't see how I am suppose to tell if that is the problem or how to find a ami that will work.
