Hello, probably the instance's subnet doesn't have an internet gateway as the default route ( or the security group attached to the instance doesn't have RDP port open. Try to go through theses steps:

  1. Create and attach an internet gateway
  2. Create a custom route table
  3. Create a security group for internet access
  4. (if necessary) Assign an Elastic IP address to an instance

This doc describes the steps: Connect to the internet using an internet gateway
