Dear Offensive Security Team, I can't connect to host. I used the key generated as allways I use in my other AMIs, but here I can't login with ec2-user, root, ubuntu...
Any help will be appreciated

good image, thanks !

first, you must be using

ssh -i 'you are id_rsa public file' admin@ec2-remote-ip

then, you must set :

export LANGUAGE=en_US.UTF-8
export LANG=en_US.UTF-8
export LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8
export PATH="/sbin:/usr/sbin:$PATH"

in you're curr profile variable file , example: ~/.bashrc

Initial SSH user changed for Version 1.0.6

Those that are having issues with 1.0.6 please note that: When SSHing into a newly provisioned instances the user must be 'admin' instead of 'kali' like older versions (docs/tutorials dating back to Jan 1st 2014).

Offensive Security please update the "highlights" section of this AMI.

Java not working

Whenever I try to connect to my kali linux instance via Java it fails to connect with the IP. I don't think I'm doing anything wrong (although it's very possible). I don't really want to download any Ssh applications either that's why I installed Java 8 so that it WOULD WORK ;)

Anyways I have Kali Linux running on a VM on my Macbook Pro 11,3 it's just I wanted to utilize more CPUs for breaking pairwise Keys aka penetration testing on wpa2 networks. I know Kali would work if I was able to connect that's the only reason I gave it 3 stars otherwise it would be zer0...
