System Console Configuration
To configure Teradata Software for AWS software, you must use a system console that supports SSH protocol. After deploying a Teradata Software for AWS instance, configure your console to allow connection to your instances. Sample console instructions are provided for PuTTY and SecureCRT.
If you are using a Mac Terminal, use the chmod command to ensure your private key file is not publicly viewable. See Amazon User Guide for Linux Instances for more information on connecting to your instance using SSH.
