So for some reason I cannot access my Amazon EC2 server through a web browser, or ping. But, I can SSH into it with the Public DNS address given to me.
I used Nmap on it, and following are the results.
Starting Nmap 5.50 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2011-02-13 18:00 Central Standard Time NSE: Loaded 57 scripts for scanning. NSE: Script Pre-scanning. NSE: Starting runlevel 1 (of 2) scan.

If it is really up, but blocking our ping probes, try -Pn Nmap done: 1 IP address (0 hosts up) scanned in 6.71 seconds Raw packets sent: 8 (304B) | Rcvd: 2 (80B)
How can I view my server's web host through a browser?
