I have an existing windows t2 Micro running on AWS EC2 and wanted to play with another one so I spun it up and couldn’t rdp into it. I tried everything i could think of - allow any ip on the rdp port, turned off my local firewall, nuked the instance and started another one (2 more) and it was the same story.

I made a video showing how I use Jekyll to build our website for our lab - ProLabPrints.com. It came out a little long at 35 minutes, I was hoping for something a little more watchable around 15 minutes but that didn’t happen.
