It's still against their AUP, the volume of the badness doesn't factor in to that.

comment Amazon EC2 - Help setting up security based on how my software works
What ports/protocols does your application need to have open to the Internet to function? There's no way your application is using all 65,000 ports. What ports is you application listening on? For example, if you're running a web application, you only need to make TCP ports 80 and 443 accessible to the Internet.

comment How do I get a list of servers and their public DNS with Amazon EC2
Why not put a cronjob on the instances themselves to pull down whatever files they need? Thats going to be a lot more stable than relying on one box to push updates to many. You could also use a user data script to pull in the files at boot time.

comment ssh_exchange_identification: read: Connection refused
The fact that you get that message means your security groups are open enough to allow the connection. Does the AMI have a default username you're not aware of? Are you using the right key pair? Posting the output of ssh -v INSTANCE_Public_DNS_NAME would go a long way. At this point you should treat the instance like any other server you can't SSH into.

Are those screenshots from the server or the client? it may be that the smart card service on the host you're connecting from is down.
