AWS Ubuntu

By installing on your Ubuntu AWS EC2 instance, you can close your AWS firewall completely and still use SSH, VNC, or any other TCP-based service.

We'll assume that you already have an account at Amazon Web Services and are familiar with the process of creating, configuring, and using an EC2 virtual machine.

When you assign or create a new "Security Group", you will also need to create or use an existing "PEM Key" authentication file. Make sure you have this file available.
