SSH access

SSH is implemented through Amezmo's secure entry point host. We securely route your connection from our load balancer directly to your instance using a pre-allocated port. Learn more about enabling ssh access and finding your port.

        ssh -i <path to your private key> \
                -p <your port>

SSH command line arguments

  • -i This argument contains the path to your private key file. When you enable SSH, you must add a public key. Every public key has a private key as well. These are referred to as a public/private key pair.
  • -p This is the port of your SSH server. Amezmo allocates a unique port for your inbound SSH sessions. This can be found on your instance's Overview page.
  • Root access is not implemented.
  • Public Key authentication is the only supported method of authentication.
