I am unable to ssh into AWS instance. I have searched the forum for the problem, but did not see any related posts. I am new to AWS.
I am running q2cli version 2019.1.0 in the newest version of Virtualbox (5.2.28) installed on 2019-05-07.
I followed instructions for installing QIIME2 using Amazon Web Services and was able to find the correct community AMI (ami-067dda7811453b303). I selected the existing security group and proceeded without a keypair.
From within my VM, I typed the following command:
ssh [email protected]
(which was the public IP of the AWS instance - in the meantime I have terminated the instance after unsuccessful ssh attempts).
I received the following error message:
ssh: connect to host 126.96.36.199 port 22: Connection timed out
I tried to rerun the ssh command with --verbose flag, but then I get an “unknown option” error.
Could you please assist me?
I also tried using putty, but still unsuccessfully so.
