For more information about the friendly bastion names, see DNS bastions.

In order to connect to the Linux instance, you must first connect to an SSH bastion.

  1. Open a shell window and enter:

    ssh Domain_FQDN\\Username@SSH_bastion_name or SSH_bastion_IP

    Which would look like this if your Domain_FQDN is "corp.domain.com", your account number is "123456789123", Your_Domain is "amazonaws.com", you choose bastion "4", and your user name is "JoeSmith":

    ssh corp.domain.com\\JoeSmith sshbastion4.A123456789123.amazonaws.com
  2. Log in with your corporate Active Directory credentials.

  3. When presented with a Bash prompt, SSH in to the instance, and then enter:

    ssh Domain_FQDN\\Username@Instance_IP

    Or, you can use the Login flag (-l):

    ssh -l Domain_FQDN\\Username@Instance_IP
