Managing Remote Access

As the Cloudspace Administrator, you can control whether or not to enable or disable Remote Access in your Cloudspace.

Enable Remote Access

To enable remote access in your Cloudspace:

  • From the main menu select Cloudspaces
  • Select the Cloudspace to manage
  • Click on the Manage button at the top-right
  • Click the Remote Access option on the left
  • Select an instance size (small, medium or large), note that in AWS or Azure on-demand pricing applies.
  • Check the Enable remote access in this CloudSpace checkbox

Once enabled, a Remote Access instance will be deployed within your cloudspace, this is the server that allows connectivity via the browser to machines in your cloudspace. This instance will be automatically re-deployed periodically to keep up the latest versions and security updates. The redeployment occurs between 2-3am on a weekend.

Disable Remote Access

To disable remote access in your Cloudspace:

  • From the main menu select Cloudspaces
  • Select the Cloudspace to manage
  • Click on the Manage button at the top-right
  • Click the Remote Access option on the left
  • Uncheck the Enable remote access in this CloudSpace checkbox

This will release the Remote Access instance from your cloudspace. You can re-enable again at any time.

Troubleshooting Remote Access

Missing Red Hat 6 Template

CONS3RT Remote Access requires a registered Red Hat 6 template in your cloudspace with the name Red Hat 6. If you are in HmC, enter a support ticket. For AWS, you may need to register a Red Hat 6 template, see the section below.

AWS AMIs for Remote Access

The following AMIs are Red Hat 6 templates that have been tested for CONS3RT Remote Access. Follow the instructions on the "Add Operating System Templates" section in this article, and add the following AMI ID for your region:

  • AWS GovCloud (us-gov-west-1): ami-b8eb6dd9
  • N. Virginia (us-east-1): ami-62c7e374
  • Ohio (us-east-2): ami-ddb692b8
  • Oregon (us-west-2): ami-b04a8ad0

Now you can enable Remote Access!
