Using the AWS CLI

This section introduces you to many of the common features and options available in the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI).

Note

By default, the AWS CLI sends requests to AWS services by using HTTPS on TCP port 443. To use the AWS CLI successfully, you must be able to make outbound connections on TCP port 443.
