AMIs that have the same ssh host key pairs as other public amis will be made private by amazon to prevent man-in-the-middle attacks, so always remove SSH Host Key Pairs (they will be regenerated with new unique keys automatically)
0.03c/hour (14€/month) is pretty cheap for a small server so lets try this 🙂
Generate and download a key-pair, so you can login to the instance via ssh.
AMI-id used is a micro ebs ubuntu 10.04 instance on eu-west-1, choose your own at http://uec-images.ubuntu.com/releases/lucid/release
Be sure to add ssh port to your security group or you will get a nice “port 22: Connection timed out”
Start the servers!
Connect via ssh
