    Check your AWS Dashboard. See if AMI (EC2 Computer) is shut down. And start it.
    Also, check your Usage stats.

    is a AWS free tier? aws.amazon.com/free/

    If so, check your billing information at console.aws.amazon.com/billing/home?
    You have to verify if your are pass the free tier (750 hours)

    It everything is OK. You need to log in to EC2, restart OpenVPN manually and see logs.

    Yeah its this 1 year free offer.
    i checked 0$ in charge cause im only running 1 instance = i cant reach the limit.
    yeah i did restart, tryed to open with normal desktop remote (not with the file you can download) and
    also looked at the logs. Im not very professional but it seems (in the logs) that evreything is OK there as well.

    Hey there!
    When I was still using it, I realise I only had crashes and errors whenever my cpu usage is 90% and up.
    I just rebooted it and turn it on back on the amazon website itself :)

    Lol, i just created a new instance. surprise, surprise I can connect to that new instance....
    Well i will just use the new instance now.
    I changed the other instances state to "STOP" that should also stop the time this instance uses, right?
    so i have full 750hrs/month on my new instance, havent i?

    No, it won't stop them from wasting your hours.
    They count instance hours even if it's off(you're using their resources).
