Your AWS resources, such as Amazon EC2 instances, Amazon S3 buckets, and so on
Even if your users have passwords, they still need permission to access your AWS resources. When you create a user, that user has no permissions by default. To give your users the permissions they need, you attach policies to them. If you have many users who will be performing the same tasks with the same resources, you can assign those users to a group, then assign the permissions to that group. For information about creating users and groups, see Identities (Users, Groups, and Roles).
To sign in as this new IAM user, sign out of the AWS console, then use the following URL, where your_aws_account_id is your AWS account number without the hyphens (for example, if your AWS account number is 1234-5678-9012, your AWS account ID is 123456789012):
Enter the IAM user name and password that you just created. When you're signed in, the navigation bar displays "your_user_name @ your_aws_account_id".
Q: What should I do if my instance is no longer responding?
This is often caused by an issue that is specific to the internal configuration of the instance. The recovery process after an instance is not responding depends on the type of instance that you are running (EBS-backed vs. instance-store backed).
First review the console output of your instance to try to determine why the reboot affected the instance. The information in the console output can sometimes provide you with enough details to understand why your instance failed.
Users who want to use the AWS Management Console must sign in to your AWS account through a unique sign-in page that's specific to your account. You provide your users with the URL they need to access the sign-in page. You can find the URL for your account on the dashboard of the IAM console.

Adding a Rule for Inbound RDP Traffic to a Windows Instance
Security groups act as a firewall for associated instances, controlling both inbound and outbound traffic at the instance level. You must add rules to a security group that enable you to connect to your Windows instance from your IP address using RDP.
To add a rule to a security group for inbound RDP traffic using the console
1.In the navigation pane of the Amazon EC2 console, click Instances. Select your instance and look at the Description tab; Security groups lists the security groups that are associated with the instance. Click view rules to display a list of the rules that are in effect for the instance.
2.In the navigation pane, click Security Groups. Select one of the security groups associated with your instance.
3.In the details pane, on the Inbound tab, click Edit. In the dialog, click Add Rule, and then select RDP from the Type list.
4.In the Source field, specify the public IP address of your computer, in CIDR notation. For example, if your IP address is 203.0.113.25, specify 203.0.113.25/32 to list this single IP address in CIDR notation. If your company allocates addresses from a range, specify the entire range, such as 203.0.113.0/24.
