I'm attempting to connect to a Windows Server 2008 R2 through Amazon EC2 on my Windows 7 PC. However each time I try to launch the instance using Remote Desktop Connection the following error comes up:
Remote Desktop can't connect to the remote computer for one of these reasons: 1) Remote access to the server is not enabled 2) The remote computer is turned off 3) The remote computer is not available on the network
When I created the instance, all the settings were left as the default. I believed it may have something to do with the network blocking the connection, but Remote Access is enabled on this PC and the firewall is allowing Remote Access (although that could be incoming, not outgoing and I've made a mistake).
Any ideas on how this could be fixed?
