I am having this problem accessing my elastic public IP for my EC2 instance in the web browser. Installed REDHAT 6.3 and installed nginx web server(up and running) and also made sure i enabled port 80 and everything needed was setup.
Now time to enter the public IP to view the default nginx web page and nothing happens. I couldn't access the IP address.
Now i could ping other websites but couldn't ping my IP address.
Now after several hours of trying and trying to figure out what was going on...i figured i should check the networking on the REDHAT OS and whenever i try to edit anything network related..that is it i lost connection to the server and cannot restart the network.
What am i getting wrong here? Why is just accessing my server through IP such a difficult thing? What do i need to do now?
EDIT. here is the security group associated with the EC2 instance
Ports Protocol Source 20-21 tcp 0.0.0.0/0 22 tcp 0.0.0.0/0 80 tcp 0.0.0.0/0 14000-14050 tcp 0.0.0.0/0
