comment Amazon RDS to EC2 replication
@Willem: Good point to be precise here - I've interpreted the quoted AWS response both ways already though, which unfortunately applies indeed (see my updated answer for details).

comment Load testing sites behind an EC2 load balancer with ApacheBench
Good point regarding load balancing in general, but it is possible to test ELB via ab just fine in principle, and the reported error would be different in case (likely apr_socket_recv: Connection timed out (110)), so I think this doesn't apply here - see e.g. [ELB capacity (simultaneous TCP sessions)?}(forums.aws.amazon.com/message.jspa?messageID=187513) for an illustration.

comment Node.js Amazon EC2 example webserver - no result
@Christian: sorry, I mixed this up in the hurry - you'll have to use the internal IP address, which AWS automatically assigned to your EC2 instance on startup (the routing/wiring from the external to the internal address is done automatically by AWS on your behalf); you can inspect it manually e.g. on the properties window of your instance in the AWS Management Console, or by various other means for automation purposes.
