This page finally gave me the script to connect to AWS via ssh
Failed to add the host to the list of known hosts
After following these sage words:
Try going into your EC2 Management Console, find the instance you’re trying to connect to, right click it > select “Connect” > choose the tab to connect via console > copy the command line they provide > paste it into your console.
Connect with a standalone SSH Client
To access your instance:
- Open an SSH client.
- Locate your private key file (proxy.pem). The wizard automatically detects the key you used to launch the instance.
- Your key file must not be publicly viewable for SSH to work. Use this command if needed: chmod 400 yourkey.pem
- Connect to your instance using its Public IP.
Now to figure out how to VPN through the ssh connection 🙂
With the help of this document [n00dlestheindelible], even though it’s written for Windows, I’m in, proxy’ing through Amazon’s AWS 🙂
Next step, getting access via Android!
