So I have this question, https://serverfault.com/revisions/430754/1, and it got closed.
Here is an forum question related to what I'm asking (this first post tells it all) http://www.webpagetest.org/forums/showthread.php?tid=835 .
Basically if you aren't RDP'd into an EC2 instance, the display doesn't render or something. I don't know the exact terminology, but this is an actual question. It's not vague, everything that's pertinent is there, and the application is pointless. Maybe I wanted to capture screen shots at an interval to watch the Resource Moniter, or maybe I wanted to run Sikuli on a bunch of ec2 instances to load test a web server. Either way the problem is the same.
This question was closed, and there was no reason for it.
Doesn't work because the instance only renders the display during an RDP connection.
There are other links out there with people having the same problem, I was just hoping that people could help me come up with a solution to this one.
