Enable Ping on AWS EC2 instance

If you want to ping your AWS EC2 instance, you need to configure your security group for that instance. Follow these steps:

  1. Login to your AWS account and go to EC2.
  2. Select the instance you want to enable ping.
  3. Go to its Security Group.
  4. Click on the Inbound Rules.
  5. Click on the Edit Inbound Rules button.
  6. Click on Add Rule.
  7. Select the Custom ICMP rule – IPv4 as Type.
  8. Select Echo Request as the Protocol. The Port Range by default will be N/A; keep it that way.
  9. Choose Anywhere in the Source column.
  10. Click on Save Rules.

After these steps, you will be able to ping to your server.
