Managing the Configuration of the InstanceΒΆ

Once the instance is launched, monitor its status using the Instances page of the EC2 Management Console.

The EC2 Management Console will display a list of instances. In this list it also indicates whether an instance is up and reachable and will also display its current public IP address and other related basic information.

Click the checkbox at the start of the row for an instance to display more information.


With the instance selected, the bottom pane of the page displays detailed information about the instance. This includes the hostname and all IP address on the instance.


To manage the configuration of the instance, connect to it via SSH as described in Connect to the instance.
