In this tutorial, I will show you how to connect to your AWS instance via SSH using Termius.
Head to https://account.termius.com/signup and create an account.
Login and download the app for macOS, Windows or Linux.
Once downloaded, install and run the app.
You can login to get a free trial or simply start set up to use the free version. Click on ‘Start Setup’ > ‘skip’ > ‘Skip’ > ‘Skip’ > ‘Skip’ until the set up is done. Then login to your account.
Click on ‘Compare Plans’ and ‘Downgrade to Starter Plan.’
Now enter your AWS host IP located in your EC2 console.
Now click on ‘Create Host.’
Now label your host and enter ‘Admin’ as your username.
Then click on ‘Set a Key.” A window will slide from the right. Click on ‘Create a new key.’ Another window will slide form the right.
In here, label your New Key (ex: My Debian 11 Server) and click on ‘Import Key’. Import your .pem key from AWS. It should look like this:
Click on ‘Save.’ Now double click on the host you created.
Click on “Add certificate and continue.” In my case, I got an error. Please go back and edit your host. Your username should be ‘admin’ (not Admin).
Once you are in, this is what you will see.
Now you are ready to start working on your server.
