Test by Logging in to the Jupyter notebook server

Now you are ready to log in to the Jupyter notebook server.

Your next step is to test the connection to the server through your browser.

  1. In the address bar of your browser, type the following URL.

    • For macOS and Linux clients, type the following URL.
    • For Windows clients, use localhost or the public DNS name of the Amazon EC2 instance and the Jupyter port number. The Jupyter port is typically 8888.


    https works only if you went through the extra step of Custom SSL and Server Configuration. These examples use http instead, but once your SSL cert is configured, you can switch to https.

  2. If the connection is successful, you see the Jupyter notebook server webpage. At this point, you maybe asked for a password or token. If you did a simple setup without configuring Jupyter, the token is displayed in the terminal window where you launched the server. Look for something like:

    Copy/paste this URL into your browser when you connect for the first time, to login with a token: http://localhost:8888/?token=0d3f35c9e404882eaaca6e15efdccbcd9a977fee4a8bc083

    Copy the token (the long series of digits), in this case it would be 0d3f35c9e404882eaaca6e15efdccbcd9a977fee4a8bc083, and use that to access your Jupyter notebook server.

    If, on the other hand, you edited the Jupyter config with a Custom SSL and Server Configuration, type the password that you created when you configured the Jupyter notebook server.

    The Jupyter login screen will ask for a token by default. However, if you set up a password, the prompt will ask for a password instead.

    Now you have access to the Jupyter notebook server that is running on the DLAMI. You can create new notebooks or run the provided Tutorials.
