AWS::Lightsail::Instance Port - AWS CloudFormation

AWS::Lightsail::Instance Port

Port is a property of the Networking property. It describes information about ports for an instance.

Syntax

To declare this entity in your AWS CloudFormation template, use the following syntax:

JSON

{ "AccessDirection" : String, "AccessFrom" : String, "AccessType" : String, "CidrListAliases" : [ String, ... ], "Cidrs" : [ String, ... ], "CommonName" : String, "FromPort" : Integer, "Ipv6Cidrs" : [ String, ... ], "Protocol" : String, "ToPort" : Integer }

YAML

AccessDirection: String AccessFrom: String AccessType: String CidrListAliases: - String Cidrs: - String CommonName: String FromPort: Integer Ipv6Cidrs: - String Protocol: String ToPort: Integer

Properties

AccessDirection

The access direction (inbound or outbound).

Note

Lightsail currently supports only inbound access direction.

Required: No

Type: String

Update requires: No interruption

AccessFrom

The location from which access is allowed. For example, Anywhere (0.0.0.0/0), or Custom if a specific IP address or range of IP addresses is allowed.

Required: No

Type: String

Update requires: No interruption

AccessType

The type of access (Public or Private).

Required: No

Type: String

Update requires: No interruption

CidrListAliases

An alias that defines access for a preconfigured range of IP addresses.

The only alias currently supported is lightsail-connect, which allows IP addresses of the browser-based RDP/SSH client in the Lightsail console to connect to your instance.

Required: No

Type: List of String

Update requires: No interruption

Cidrs

The IPv4 address, or range of IPv4 addresses (in CIDR notation) that are allowed to connect to an instance through the ports, and the protocol.

Note

The ipv6Cidrs parameter lists the IPv6 addresses that are allowed to connect to an instance.

Examples:

  • To allow the IP address 192.0.2.44, specify 192.0.2.44 or 192.0.2.44/32.

  • To allow the IP addresses 192.0.2.0 to 192.0.2.255, specify 192.0.2.0/24.

Required: No

Type: List of String

Update requires: No interruption

CommonName

The common name of the port information.

Required: No

Type: String

Update requires: No interruption

FromPort

The first port in a range of open ports on an instance.

Allowed ports:

  • TCP and UDP - 0 to 65535

  • ICMP - The ICMP type for IPv4 addresses. For example, specify 8 as the fromPort (ICMP type), and -1 as the toPort (ICMP code), to enable ICMP Ping.

  • ICMPv6 - The ICMP type for IPv6 addresses. For example, specify 128 as the fromPort (ICMPv6 type), and 0 as toPort (ICMPv6 code).

Required: No

Type: Integer

Update requires: No interruption

Ipv6Cidrs

The IPv6 address, or range of IPv6 addresses (in CIDR notation) that are allowed to connect to an instance through the ports, and the protocol. Only devices with an IPv6 address can connect to an instance through IPv6; otherwise, IPv4 should be used.

Note

The cidrs parameter lists the IPv4 addresses that are allowed to connect to an instance.

Required: No

Type: List of String

Update requires: No interruption

Protocol

The IP protocol name.

The name can be one of the following:

  • tcp - Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) provides reliable, ordered, and error-checked delivery of streamed data between applications running on hosts communicating by an IP network. If you have an application that doesn't require reliable data stream service, use UDP instead.

  • all - All transport layer protocol types.

  • udp - With User Datagram Protocol (UDP), computer applications can send messages (or datagrams) to other hosts on an Internet Protocol (IP) network. Prior communications are not required to set up transmission channels or data paths. Applications that don't require reliable data stream service can use UDP, which provides a connectionless datagram service that emphasizes reduced latency over reliability. If you do require reliable data stream service, use TCP instead.

  • icmp - Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) is used to send error messages and operational information indicating success or failure when communicating with an instance. For example, an error is indicated when an instance could not be reached. When you specify icmp as the protocol, you must specify the ICMP type using the fromPort parameter, and ICMP code using the toPort parameter.

Required: No

Type: String

Update requires: No interruption

ToPort

The last port in a range of open ports on an instance.

Allowed ports:

  • TCP and UDP - 0 to 65535

  • ICMP - The ICMP code for IPv4 addresses. For example, specify 8 as the fromPort (ICMP type), and -1 as the toPort (ICMP code), to enable ICMP Ping.

  • ICMPv6 - The ICMP code for IPv6 addresses. For example, specify 128 as the fromPort (ICMPv6 type), and 0 as toPort (ICMPv6 code).

Required: No

Type: Integer

Update requires: No interruption
