My EC2 server running a Debian distribution: Debian GNU/Linux 6.0
I need to connect dreamweaver to an Amazon EC2 instance but it is not working with keys.
I need do configure my server to work without key pairs.
I want to connect at my server with a simple form.
Key pairs are secure but annoying. How can I do this? What modifications I do on the server?
Set up an FTP service on your instance. You won't need a key, only a username + password. Make sure to open the appropriate port in the AWS firewall.
I need to scale some services from local servers to Amazon ec2. The current production-environment is based on the latest openSUSE. In order to keep things simple, I want to run the instances in ec2 in the same environment.
However, I'm unable to find any public SUSE ami's or even howto's on this subject. I've seen a few similar questions in different forums, without any resolutions.
So actually, I have two questions.
1) Is this at all doable?
2) If, so, is there any documentation / howto's available somewhere?
To answer my own question. Yes, it can be done - I was just searhing in the wrong region. ec2.us-east-1.amazonaws.com has both 32 and 64 bits public ami's. This thread gives some advices about openSUSE and ec2.
