I’m a first-time user of the Cloud Express version (clinician, not experienced with connecting to Linux servers). I’ve launched an EC2 instance as an AWS micro user. Keypair accepted, check. I just haven’t yet been able to connect to it. I’m using a macbook for this, OS 10.10.
My initial expectation was that I’d just be connecting through a browser window. But then I read the AWS instructions on connecting through an SSH client. So I am trying to do this. Right now if I Terminal command, per the instructions :
ssh -i /Users// ec2-user@ec2-.compute-1.amazonaws.com
I get a hang, and then the error message:
ssh: connect to host port 22: Operation timed out
Next steps recommended?
