I have an rds and ec2 instance in tokyo region. I just set up an rds server to test stuff from my ec2 server.
When I type
mysql -h remdev-experimental-BLEH-northeast-1.rds.amazonaws.com -P 3306 -uUSER -pPass
in ec2 the connection times out.
But i am able to get mysql access from my local computer. I am able to perform operations just fine.
My rds is publicly accessible and my ec2 server allows all traffic into it , and from it
I tried restarting my ec2 server but that didnt fix this issue
