I'm new to managing EC2 instances. I have created one, and I can run it and remotely login with Windows Remote Desktop. I can ping external servers from inside my instance, but I cannot ping the instance from my machine using its DNS public name. I guess I'm doing something wrong with security groups. Any thoughts anybody?

To ping an EC2 instance, you will first have to allow ICMP inbound traffic in the security group of that instance.
