To access Web Gateway within AWS, you must provide an SSH key pair for authentication. You can create this key pair on an AWS Web Console.
- On the AWS Web Console, select the region where you want to set up Web Gateway from the drop-down menu in the upper right corner.
- Navigate to the Services menu in the upper left corner and select EC2.
- Select Network and Security, then Key Pairs.
- Click Create Key Pair.
- Type a key pair name and enter it.
A key pair file is generated and downloaded to the system that the AWS Web Console is connected to.
The key pair file is generated with a .pem ending.
To connect to Web Gateway instance within AWS using PuTTY, convert the .pem file into the .pkk format, which is supported by PuTTY.
