Yeah I’ve used EC2 loads. Their firewalls are completely restrictive. It’s quite a pain in the backside getting used to it, but it’s very secure. Here’s Amazon’s guide on how to use their insane, but pretty awesome firewall.

An elastic IP is only useful if you’re planning on upgrading the rig. The IP you currently have will only be destroyed if you terminate the instance. Elastic IP allows you to connect a given static IP to any of your EC2 instances.
