Connect to the instance¶
The TNSR instance does not have a default password. SSH connections to this instance require key-based authentication using an SSH key selected when launching the instance.
The default account is named
To connect from a shell prompt in a Unix/Linux terminal:
$ ssh -i <my_key_file> tnsr@<eth0_public_ip_addr>
Substitute the actual key file name instead of typing
<my_key_file> and the
management interface Elastic IP Address instead of typing
The ssh client will print a warning similar to:
The authenticity of host 'x.x.x.x' can't be established. ECDSA key fingerprint is SHA256:6/LDXVPpD2v6hnWdFHFWZhkCbSpMcaH4tBgTuDLAa40. Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)?
This warning only appears the first time connecting using SSH on a given system
and user account. Type
yes to continue connecting.
If all went well, the TNSR CLI will automatically be launched, resulting in output similar to the following:
