You can always confirm the zone you started an instance in by logging in to
the AWS console and, under Instances, find the instance you're wanting to
check. After selecting it, under the instance properties, the zone will be
displayed for the given instance.
The security group and the key pair are rather important to get right for
being able to access the instance. However, it seems you're connecting to
an existing cluster and are able to access the web console, so I would
think the problem is really in having started the instance in the wrong
zone vs. the security key issue?
Let us know if you have any more issues,
