I'm followed directions here: how-to-install-webdeploy-on-windows-server-2012 on a server 2012 EC2 instance. Then I followed directions here: how-to-use-web-deploy-visual-studio-to-importexport-iis8-sites but VS errors out saying "ERROR DESTINATION NOT REACHABLE" when validating the connection. Is there an additional security setting for EC2 instances?

I had to open up port 8172 on the security group for the instance.
