I have created an AWS Ec2 server running windows 2012.  I can access the server from Atlanta and Florida but my developers in Portland and San Francisco can not via HTTP.  The server has its firewall turned off and I am using  the AWS security groups that points port 80 to my server.

Please advise

Hi,

When accessing from Atlanta and Florida are you trying to connect via HTTP as well, or by another means?

Also, what do you have your Source set as in your Security Group? Is it set to a specific network for example, and if it does, does that allow for your developers access from their location?

Do you have any NACLs set up that could be restricting access?

Cheers,

Stu...

I fixed the http problem from atlanta but when I try to http or rdp from my N Cal server to my server in Virginia I get no response using both the public and private ip address.

My staff on the west coast are still asleep.
