Nightmare connecting via .ssh

07/18/2013

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:

  1. Open an SSH client.
  2. Locate your private key file (proxy.pem). The wizard automatically detects the key you used to launch the instance.
  3. Your key file must not be publicly viewable for SSH to work. Use this command if needed: chmod 400 yourkey.pem
  4. 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!
