I am doing the course and I got stuck in the same place just about 15 mins ago!. I manged to sort it out.
Check your default NACL inbound rules and ensure you are allowing ssh traffic i.e., rule 100. If you are seeing rule 90 to deny the traffic please delete it and try again.
Hi Donny, I wanted to check in and make sure you had been able to connect.
Hi mdnawy111, Hi Ell Marquez,
Thanks for the replies!!
I finally figured out the main issue. It's the firewall used by the company.
So I went back and recreated the EC2 from home and managed to connect without any trouble.
Thanks again You Two!! :)
Nice well done and I am glad you got it solved. Hey by the way we have playground servers that allow you to access servers via port 80-443 with ssh so you should be able to connect to them even from your company environment.
Hi Ermin Kreponic,
Thanks!! I can verified that the labs have been working fine from office computer so far.
Only the one from AWS free tier account that I created doesn't work (which is okay since I can always go home and exercise).
