Using the Built-in MindTerm SSH Client

The simplest way to log into a Linux instance is to use the built-in MindTerm SSH client. Each online instance includes an ssh action that you can use to launch the MindTerm client.

Note

You must have Java enabled in your browser to use the MindTerm client.

To log in with the MindTerm client

  1. If you haven't done so already, authorize SSH access for the IAM user that will be connecting to the instance, as described in the preceding section.

  2. Log in as the IAM user.

  3. On the Instances page, choose ssh in the Actions column for the appropriate instance.

  4. For Private key, provide a path to the IAM user's personal private key or an Amazon EC2 private key, depending on which public keys you have installed on the instance.

  5. Choose Launch Mindterm and use the terminal window to run commands on the instance.
