Remember to add a new Route Tables entry when creating a new VPC on AWS!

Today we’d like to talk about creating a new VPC (Virtual Private Cloud) on AWS and attaching an internet gateway to it. We did that, but still weren’t able to connect to the machine. After a quick search through our VPC settings, we found that we forgot to add a new entry to Route Tables. You need to create a new route with a 0.0.0.0/0 destination, which targets to your internet gateway, in order for Amazon to route your external traffic from VPC to the internet.
