Synopsis

Calls the Amazon Lightsail OpenInstancePublicPorts API operation.

Syntax

Open-LSInstancePublicPort
-InstanceName <String>
-PortInfo_CidrListAlias <String[]>
-PortInfo_Cidr <String[]>
-PortInfo_FromPort <Int32>
-PortInfo_Protocol <NetworkProtocol>
-PortInfo_ToPort <Int32>
-Select <String>
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
-Force <SwitchParameter>

Description

Opens ports for a specific Amazon Lightsail instance, and specifies the IP addresses allowed to connect to the instance through the ports, and the protocol. The OpenInstancePublicPorts action supports tag-based access control via resource tags applied to the resource identified by instanceName. For more information, see the Lightsail Dev Guide.

Parameters

This parameter overrides confirmation prompts to force the cmdlet to continue its operation. This parameter should always be used with caution.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-InstanceName <String>
The name of the instance for which to open ports.
Required?True
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
Changes the cmdlet behavior to return the value passed to the InstanceName parameter. The -PassThru parameter is deprecated, use -Select '^InstanceName' instead. This parameter will be removed in a future version.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-PortInfo_Cidr <String[]>
The IP address, or range of IP addresses in CIDR notation, that are allowed to connect to an instance through the ports, and the protocol. Lightsail supports IPv4 addresses.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.
For more information about CIDR block notation, see Classless Inter-Domain Routing on Wikipedia.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesPortInfo_Cidrs
-PortInfo_CidrListAlias <String[]>
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?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesPortInfo_CidrListAliases
-PortInfo_FromPort <Int32>
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 example, specify 8 as the fromPort (ICMP type), and -1 as the toPort (ICMP code), to enable ICMP Ping. For more information, see Control Messages on Wikipedia.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-PortInfo_Protocol <NetworkProtocol>
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. For more general information, see Transport layer on Wikipedia.
  • 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?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-PortInfo_ToPort <Int32>
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 example, specify 8 as the fromPort (ICMP type), and -1 as the toPort (ICMP code), to enable ICMP Ping. For more information, see Control Messages on Wikipedia.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Select <String>
Use the -Select parameter to control the cmdlet output. The default value is 'Operation'. Specifying -Select '*' will result in the cmdlet returning the whole service response (Amazon.Lightsail.Model.OpenInstancePublicPortsResponse). Specifying the name of a property of type Amazon.Lightsail.Model.OpenInstancePublicPortsResponse will result in that property being returned. Specifying -Select '^ParameterName' will result in the cmdlet returning the selected cmdlet parameter value.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)

Common Credential and Region Parameters

-AccessKey <String>
The AWS access key for the user account. This can be a temporary access key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesAK
-Credential <AWSCredentials>
An AWSCredentials object instance containing access and secret key information, and optionally a token for session-based credentials.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-EndpointUrl <String>
The endpoint to make the call against.Note: This parameter is primarily for internal AWS use and is not required/should not be specified for normal usage. The cmdlets normally determine which endpoint to call based on the region specified to the -Region parameter or set as default in the shell (via Set-DefaultAWSRegion). Only specify this parameter if you must direct the call to a specific custom endpoint.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-NetworkCredential <PSCredential>
Used with SAML-based authentication when ProfileName references a SAML role profile. Contains the network credentials to be supplied during authentication with the configured identity provider's endpoint. This parameter is not required if the user's default network identity can or should be used during authentication.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-ProfileLocation <String>
Used to specify the name and location of the ini-format credential file (shared with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs)If this optional parameter is omitted this cmdlet will search the encrypted credential file used by the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio first. If the profile is not found then the cmdlet will search in the ini-format credential file at the default location: (user's home directory)\.aws\credentials.If this parameter is specified then this cmdlet will only search the ini-format credential file at the location given.As the current folder can vary in a shell or during script execution it is advised that you use specify a fully qualified path instead of a relative path.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesAWSProfilesLocation, ProfilesLocation
-ProfileName <String>
The user-defined name of an AWS credentials or SAML-based role profile containing credential information. The profile is expected to be found in the secure credential file shared with the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio. You can also specify the name of a profile stored in the .ini-format credential file used with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesStoredCredentials, AWSProfileName
-Region <Object>
The system name of an AWS region or an AWSRegion instance. This governs the endpoint that will be used when calling service operations. Note that the AWS resources referenced in a call are usually region-specific.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesRegionToCall
-SecretKey <String>
The AWS secret key for the user account. This can be a temporary secret key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.

Outputs

This cmdlet returns an Amazon.Lightsail.Model.Operation object. The service call response (type Amazon.Lightsail.Model.OpenInstancePublicPortsResponse) can also be referenced from properties attached to the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack.
