Course Description

In this challenge, you will configure a web server that runs on an Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instance in a virtual private cloud (VPC). First, you will create a security group, and then you will configure a network access control list (ACL) that allows HTTP, HTTPS, and ICMP IPv4 traffic to reach the web server. Next, you will create an Amazon EC2 instance that runs a web server. Finally, you will test connectivity to the web server from the internet. Note: Once you begin the challenge, you will not be able to pause, save, or exit and then return to your challenge. Please ensure that you have set aside enough time to complete the challenge before you start.
