Can’t use any SSH port other than 22 on Amazon EC2

By nano squared

I recently setup a Ubuntu server on Amazon EC2, and I’m accessing it from my windows computer through ssh via putty. After installing LAMP, I try to change the SSH port 22 to another number but after changing the port and allowing it on firewall I cannot connect to that specified port. It always says “connection timeout”.

Seems OK when checked using netstat -tnlp | grep ssh.
I get this:

tcp    0    0*      LISTEN      8963/sshd
tcp6   0      0 :::2222               :::*      LISTEN      8963/sshd

I don’t know what is wrong in my configuration. Can someone please help me?
