Product Details

Version: 9.3-RELEASE
Available on AWS Marketplace Since: 11/20/2012
Note: Always ensure your operating system is current for your needs.

Usage Instructions

This AMI launches with sshd running and the SSH public key you provide at launch time allowed to log in as root. To use this AMI, you will need to adjust your EC2 firewall rules to allow SSH (tcp/22) from your location, and then "ssh ec2-user@<Instance IP address>".
From there on, standard FreeBSD usage and system configuration applies, except that freebsd-update cannot be used (due to local patches needed for the FreeBSD/EC2 platform).
