I'm having a bit of a problem with EC2 API tools timing out on a new instance I created.
Yesterday I took an image of a server on which the tools worked fine. I made some changes to the software it runs, and init scripts, which I needed to support our new deployment system.
Today, I set up a new Launch Configuration for it, and spawned a new instance. I log into this instance from the original one, as it only has a private IP. Now, for the purpose of our deployment I need to be able to access the snapshots with a certain tag, which works fine on original instance, but on the new one it just times out:
Unknown problem connecting to host: 'https://ec2.eu-west-1.amazonaws.com'
Unable to execute HTTP request: Connect to ec2.eu-west-1.amazonaws.com:443 timed out
I feel like it's a configuration issue, is there any way you could shed some light on what I'm doing wrong?
- both instances have the same Key pair name.
- both have the same security group.
- the server that I'm having a problem with is only accessible via private IP, with the Public DNS, Public IP, and Elastic IP being blank.
Any help will be much appreciated.
