Creating the instance and opening ports
Create the instance like explained in the netbsd wiki. And open the ports you need in the EC2 security groups configuration.
 
Choose a location: https://aws.amazon.com/fr/about-aws/global-infrastructure/
http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/using-regions-availability-zones.html
 
System preparation
Proceed as-like any other NetBSD post-installation process](http://pbraun.nethence.com/unix/sysutils_bsd/netbsd.html), just don't forget to setup your own custom hostname,
cd /etc/
mv myname myname.dist
echo host > myname
/etc/rc.d/network restart (yes it comes back)
and check,
hostname
 
Also add the public and natted aws IPs into the hosts file,
vi /etc/hosts
public_ip host host.example.net
172.31.x.x host host.example.net
