Troubleshooting AWS Network Connectivity: Security Groups and NACLs

Troubleshooting basic network connectivity issues is an important skill. This troubleshooting scenario is an opportunity to assess your skills in this area. In this lab scenario, a junior administrator has deployed a VPC and instances, but there are a few things wrong. `Instance3` is not able to connect to the internet and the junior admin can't determine why. Being a senior administrator, it's your responsibility to troubleshoot the issue and ensure the instance has connectivity to the internet, so that you can ping and log in to the instance using SSH.
