Cannot connect

Like the others, I cannot connect to this machine after it is launched. SSH doesn't even connect to allow authentication with the keys.

Same issue here. Unable to reach any port, not even ping. In instance logs i can see that it attempts to start an SSH server, but never completes/succeeds: "Starting OpenBSD Secure Shell server..." And there's never a "Started... " log Version: Kali Linux 2020.1

I had a similar issue, but it worked after I did the following. 1) ping $ip 2) attempt 1 ssh -i cert root@ec2-$ip #failed 3) attempt 2 ssh -i cert -vvv root@ec2-$ip #failed connection refused 4) attempt 3 ssh -i cert -vvv root@ec2-$ip #failed connection refused again 5) attempt 3 ssh -i cert -vvv root@ec2-$ip #better progress, but it still dropped. #asked me to login as ec2-user instead 6) attempt 3 ssh -i cert -vvv ec2-user@ec2-$ip #successful connection
