Some more details that might help someone answer:

  • Which AWS image did you use to create the instance?
  • Where are you running the installation from?

A couple of initial things to check:

  • Has the EC2 instance been configured to allow SSH as root? (the default config for most images is key-pair only authentication from an unprivileged user, like ec2-user)
  • Does the security group you have attached to the AWS instance allow SSH from the IP or IP range you are connecting from?
  • Is there a local firewall on the instance itself that might be inteferring? (iptables)
