When you create SecurityGroup on AWS, there is a point you have to care. Security group can control access list
listed as IP addresses. These values are retained as
Outbound format. Inbound shows that this security group
can receive package from described IP addresses. Outbound is the contrary.
So if you missed the configuration of security groups, you cannot access your instances from the internet. And I found that this fact can be also applied to VPC environment. If your instances are launched inside VPC, you have to permit these internal IP addresses with security group. I misunderstood that. VPC access are always permitted because these instances are in the same network. So I wrote down today this fact for reminding myself whenever I launch EC2 instances with my own security groups.Written on January 28th, 2015 by Kai Sasaki
