Did you add your ppk key to Putty? You need to convert .pem key from AWS to .ppk file.

You can refer to this https://support.cloudacademy.com/hc/en-us/articles/360036151511-How-do-I-convert-a-PEM-Key-to-a-PPK-Key

A timeout indicates that the EC2 instance isn't reachable. If the key was incorrect you'd see an error messaging indicating that.

Things I would try:

  • See if you can SSH to other destinations; if your service provider may be blocking outbound SSH connections from your network.
  • Use the EC2 Serial Console to check that the instance is running the SSH daemon.
  • See if you can SSH from the instance to itself.
  • Set up another EC2 instance in the same VPC. Use the Serial Console again to see if you can SSH within the VPC.
