    Hi,

    Linux instances must be connected with the help of PuTTY and PuTTYgen.
    - Download and install PuTTY from the PuTTY download page. If you already have an older version of PuTTY installed, we recommend that you download the latest version. Be sure to install the entire suite.
    - Get the public DNS name of the instance. You can get the public DNS for your instance using the Amazon EC2 console. If you've assigned an IPv6 address to your instance, you can optionally connect to the instance using its IPv6 address instead of a public IPv4 address or public IPv4 DNS hostname. Your local computer must have an IPv6 address and must be configured to use IPv6. You can get the IPv6 address of your instance using the Amazon EC2 console.
    - Locate the private key. Get the fully-qualified path to the location on your computer of the .pem file for the key pair that you specified when you launched the instance. You can decrypt the key with the help of PuTTYgen.
    - Enable inbound SSH traffic from your IP address to your instance. Ensure that the security group associated with your instance allows incoming SSH traffic from your IP address.
    - Choose Open to start the PuTTY session and for Hostname, enter the public DNS hostname or public IPv4 address for your instance.
    - Specify the private key for your instance. For Private Key, enter the path to your private key, or choose the "..." button to browse for the file. For newer versions of WinSCP, choose advanced to open the advanced site settings and then under SSH, choose Authentication to find theprivate key file setting

    The detailed instructions are in the below link

    Hi,

    Also to connect with windows instance, make sure you set the RDP port number in the security group.
