Access the private instance remotely

This section details how to access the private instance remotely.

Because the default security group is associated with the instance, remote SSH connections are allowed through to it.

To access the instance remotely by using SSH

  1. On a remote machine, open an SSH session. As the destination, use the Elastic IP address that you associated with the Vyatta NAT instance. Enter 3333 as the port.
    Note: On Linux and UNIX systems, use the ssh command. On Windows machines use a program such as putty for SSH access.
  2. The Vyatta NAT device has been configured to translate any connections to port 3333 to address port 22. This connection is routed to the instance that is created within the private subnet.
  3. Use the ssh private key to connect to the VM for the Vyatta user.
