So today I decided to make a EC2 instance on AWS to make a simple Apache server and a DNS server. I initialize the instance and install XAMPP and the DNS server program. I try to connect via my browser to the Apache server and it errors out with a 504. I look at the open ports on the AWS console and I opened the right ports. After 2 hours of looking at what is wrong I discover that I forgot to open the right ports on the Windows firewall. I am such a moron...
