RadiantOne Configuration

RadiantOne Nodes Running on Linux

You can connect to any Bastion host running in any availability zone. Through the Bastion host, you can connect to and manage any RadiantOne node. The .pem file generated when you created the key pair in AWS must be converted to use it in your SSH session to connect to the Bastion. The following steps describe how to use Puttygen to convert .pem files to .ppk files on Windows clients.

  1. Download PuTTY, Puttygen and Pageant.

  2. Start Puttygen and select “Load”.

  3. Select your .PEM file and click Open.

  4. Click OK to exit the confirmation.

  5. Select “Save Private Key”. A passphrase is not required but can be used if additional security is required. Puttygen converts the .PEM format to .PPK format.

  6. After you convert the private key, close Puttygen and run Pageant (pageant.exe).

  7. To import the PuTTY-formatted key into Pageant, right-click the Pageant icon in the System tray and choose “View Keys”.

Connecting to Data Sources On-Premises

The network configuration required for connectivity to your on-premises network is not handled by the Cloud Formation Templates. Contact your Network Administrator to configure the network between the AWS VPC and your on-premises network to ensure it complies with your corporate security policy. This would involve setting up a Customer Gateway, Virtual Private Gateway, and VPN connection.
