Amazon Web Services (AWS), is a collection of remote computing services, also called web services, that make up a cloud-computing platform  operated from 11 geographical regions across the world. The most central and well-known of these services include Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, also known as "EC2", and Amazon Simple Storage Service, also known as "S3". Other services include Elastic MapReduce (EMR), Route 53 (a DNS web service),  provides a highly available and scalable Domain Name System (DNS) web service, Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), storage, database, deployment and application services.

When my site are in development I have always gotten the IP address from AWS, then accessed them from my browser. But here's an article I would read if there is a secret exposure...

https://www.imore.com/how-edit-your-macs-hosts-file-and-why-you-would-want

I do not take lightly to changing my Hosts file because I do not want to put myself into an unstable condition, if I missed something in the directions.

Is there risk to using an IP address to directly access my PC? I assume the biggest benefit is that the site can be kept private from public view, but is there any way in the world that someone cold guess that address?

Are the scrapers out there pinging billions of IP addresses?

As far as keeping it private, it is mainly that I can use my real domain name and keep that private? That's nt important to me since I can buy the SSL cert and do that before launch. AT the moment, I just need to look at the sire and test it, so by adding my IP into the browser, does that expose my IP to scrapers?

Thanks.

This is using Amazon t2-micro AMI 64-bit linux EC2 instance. I have a gmail email address, thinking of setting up a mail client, with correct credentials so as email can be sending out from this server. I saw a Sendmail daemon is running. I am thinking of sending a tripwire report to my gmail email address, with the cron job command as shown:

/usr/sbin/tripwire -m c | mail -s "Tripwire Report from HOST" abc@gmail.com

I heard that sendmail client is pretty difficult to setup. How about other mail client, such as postfix, and so on.

Thanks in advance.

Hello EE,

I have an f5 big ip appliance up and running , however I wish to have 2 interfaces configured . One interface to sit 'out front' of our dmz firewall , and a second network interface to reside 'inside' on the 'lan' to load balance tcp traffic and run irules .

Can someone provide direction please on this matter.

Experts,

We are trying to bring up a postfix mail server on an AWS EC2 instance. We have gone through SES but we need to manage our mail server rather than AWS managing it for us.

We already have a domain linux.com. The next step would be to bring up a EC2 instance and install Postfix on it. I would assume we need an Elastic IP assigned and then map a DNS mail.linux.com to it so that is is resolvable. I'm next assuming we need to assign an MX record for mail.linux.com. Would this generally work if you send email to someone@linux.com or are there additional steps like assigning SPF records and DMARC.

This is using Amazon web services. This EC2 instance was created using Elastic beanstalk. Using this Elastic Beanstalk, 1 EC2 and 1 S3, plus some other components are created. This EC2 is also having php and MySQL, so it is a LAMP server. It is used to serve dynamic web applications.

Now, I want to setup cloudfront for SSL cert and faster data delivery. I follow the normal steps > choose web delivery, configure origin, distribution, and cache behaviour. I also made use of the route 53 for the public hostname to be pointed to relevant cloudnet. I waited this cloudfront distribution to be "deployed". However, when I access to the web with https, an error message prompts:

cloudfront attempted to establish a connection with the origin, but either the attempt failed or the origin closed the connection.

What would be standard ways of setting up this cloudfront to work with EC2 (LAMP)?

Thanks,

I setup OpenVPN Access Server using the public AMI available on Amazon about a year ago.

Part of this includes the ability for Users to sign-in to an OpenVPN Connect webpage. On this page the Users can download the a client to run on their local systems.

The client the Users download is OpenVPN Connect Client 2.1.1.102.

The latest version is 2.4.2 that is available on the OpenVPN Downloads page.

How can I replace the older client on my Server with the newer client so that Users are getting the latest version?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Hi,
I'm trying to setup a new webrtc instance behind the firewall where tcp 80 and 443 ports are only available.
All is fine as long as udp ports are enabled. Once I block udp, I can't establish a client connection.
The stun/turn server has been setup however connections are not redirected from webrtc.

RTCMultiConnection.js config:

var IceServersHandler = (function() {
        function getIceServers(connection) {
            var iceServers = [];
iceServers.push(getTURNObj('turn:my.domain.com:443?transport=tcp', 'user', 'pass'));
            if (window.RMCExternalIceServers) {
                iceServers = iceServers.concat(getExtenralIceFormatted());
            } else if (typeof window.getExternalIceServers !== 'undefined' && window.getExternalIceServers == true) {
                connection.iceServers = iceServers;
                window.iceServersLoadCallback = function() {
                    connection.iceServers = connection.iceServers.concat(getExtenralIceFormatted());
                };
            }

            return iceServers;
        }

        return {
            getIceServers: getIceServers
        };
    })();

turnserver.conf config

listening-port=80
tls-listening-port=443
listening-ip=10.10.10.10
relay-ip=1.1.1.1
external-ip=1.1.1.1/10.10.10.10
lt-cred-mech
user=user:pass
realm=domain.com
no-udp
no-dtls
no-udp-relay
cert=/usr/local/etc/cert.pem
pkey=/usr/local/etc/pkey.pem

All is running in AWS cloud.

Hi everyone,

Has anyone of you implement these two aws services?

I have the same scenario about this guy. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/40660618/aws-api-gateway-elastic-beanstalk-and-microservices

Thanks in advance for you help

I have a FIX engine running in the cloud and I'm entertaining the idea of streaming FIX messages over websockets vs aws SNS.  Does anyone know pros'cons for either or at least some concrete resource to be able to compare the 2?

I built lightweight clients for both and both seem to be able to be tuned for high usage as well as low usage, so its just matter of price seems like.  Need help deciding.

Simply put.. I connected to a free micro instance of a postgres DB I created on AWS RDS.

It worked fine. I set up a database and a couple tables on it.

Now that I'm trying to connect to it from my app.. it's just timing out.

AND.. I can no longer connect to it from PSequel or.. anything. It just keeps timing out.

I'm not even sure what more detailed questions to ask or what to direction to poke in on this one.

Which are the best training sites for IT?

I have been using -

Pluralsight
Testout
CloudAcademy
Lynda

Most engaging so far and helpful for certification was Testout which does not have all content. But still all training gets less engaging.

I have seen Stormwind which is less engaging and am looking for company like Stormwind which has all training module and more engaging it look go on preview but I have not heard much good feedback on internet and it is a big investment

Hi Expert,

One of our client requested me that they want to access SQL Database from Amazon Web Services . Is it possible. If yes/no please explain. They are already using AWS for their new systems and it really working well. New tooling, technology, TpaaS infrastructure etc. what are our options if they want to keep using the current DB back ends

They also told me they can also migrate their DB back end needs to AWS.

we received this error transferring a VM to Amazon Web services. The VM is 2TB.

IO error: NO space left on device when importing VM from Vmware to AWS

This error shows up in the amazon Web Services plugin for Vpshere.

Does anyone know what this means? does this mean that the connector VM is out of space? how do we resolve?

Hi I have developed a powershell script to logrotate on aws s3. The procedure is that  through script I create archive using 7zip and then use aws put-object. But the script fails to create archive in first step and cites it cannot read archive.

The second approach I did was used compress-archive to create archive and it worked successfully to create archive. But when I download the archive from s3 manually I find that sub-directory files are all present in root folder and all files named as filepaths. This happens as compress-archive fails to send metadata of archive.

Hello EE,

I needed some direction and insight on which load balancer service would be most effective to load balance com+ application traffic . I would need to distribute remote procedure call traffic on tcp 135 , that would then redistribute to a DCOM range of 3500-3900 . The persistence should be Source address affinity persistence " Also known as simple persistence, source address affinity persistence supports TCP and UDP protocols, and directs session requests to the same server based solely on the source IP address of a packet" .

If anyone has some experience and insight into which Elastic Load Balancing service is best to distribute to ec2 instances and a general road map to get this working that would be great .

Hi,
I am setting up a SQL 2012 failover cluster in AWS, My two sql nodes are in different availability zones (2 x Subnets) 10.10.1.0/24 (Zone A) and 10.10.2.0/24 (Zone B). I have configured windows failover cluster / sql cluster and am able to failover between the two servers. There are two DNS entries for the sql cluster name,

AWS-SQL-CLUS - 10.10.1.20
AWS-SQL-CLUS - 10.10.2.20

Currently the host in Zone A is online and servers in that subnet can connect to the instance but servers in Zone B are trying to connect to AWS-SQL-CLUS - 10.10.2.20 which is offline.... how do i get the servers in other subnet to resolve the DNS entry of the online server ??

I have a public nat instance and private instance with only private ip. Without iptables in nat instance , private instance is getting internet. But after adding iptable rules in nat instance, private instance is not getting internet. I added iptable rules with output drop,input drop ,forward drop chain. After adding this rule nat is not working.

Do I need to add any pre routing or post routing rule to my iptable rule list.
