1. launch an instance and SSH into it

2. Install Node.js using the following command:

sudo apt-get install nodejs

3. create a file named test_server.js with the following content:

require("http").createServer(function(request, response){

response.writeHeader(200, {"Content-Type": "text/plain"});
