Inbound means incoming traffic coming to your EC2 instances. For that you have to add inbound rule. For web server generally we use port 80.

Outbound means outgoing traffic from your EC2 instances. To connect internet or any browser you have to add outbound rule.

Hope this will clear your doubt.

Thank You

The inbound rule means incoming traffic. Say you have an EC2 instance. Now you want to do SSH into the instance. For that, you need to add one inbound rule on port 22.
