I was wondering if Amazon Web Services disallows outbound SSH connections from public facing EC2 instances? I have an SSH Bastion on a public subnet with an Elastic IP setup to where I can can successfully tunnel connections into my VPCs but when I create a Security Group rule to allow outbound connections to a remote server and try to make a connection I get:
ssh: Connection timed out
I've done some searching, and found this question unanswered:
Edit: I can SSH from the SSH-Bastion but ONLY to other EC2 instances that belong to me. Connecting to an external server not on AWS is currently not working for me.
Edit2: I can also make outbound connections to the internet through an Internet Gateway. Running works
curl www.google.com telnet www.google.com 80
The outbound security rules for the bastion look like this:
22 (SSH) [internal AWS Private subnet range] 22 (SSH) [external linode ip] 80 (HTTP) 0.0.0.0/0 443 (HTTPS) 0.0.0.0/0
