I've launched a new EC2 instance with AWS using Amazon 64 bit linux (amzn-ami-2011.09.1.x86_64-ebs (ami-20506254)) and I'm having trouble ssh-ing into it. I've generated a public/private ssh keypair using
ssh-keygen -t rsa and added the .pub (public) key to my key-pairs in the EC2 management console.
When I attempt to run: ssh -i ~/.ssh/aws_ec2 -v ec2-46-137-17-221.eu-west-1.compute.amazonaws.com
I get the following output:

Not sure what's going on since it does offer my ssh private key but appears to just get denied. Anyone know what's going on?
