Enabling SSH Tunneling

In this guide, we will walk through what is a SSH tunnel and how you can enable this within Artie.

What is SSH Tunneling?

An SSH tunnel refers to a secured connection between a local machine and a remote server. SSH tunnels are a great and secure way to manage access to private resources within your VPC.

With Artie, it would look something like this:

Step 1 - Creating a SSH tunnel

If you have one already, skip this step. However, if you don't - then make sure to create an EC2 or equivalent instance. Make sure this instance can connect to your database.

Step 2 - Allowing Artie to connect

  • Create a new SSH Tunnel from our dashboard

  • Grab the public IP address and port

  • Once the SSH tunnel is created, copy the public key and add it to your server

You can create the SSH tunnel from Company Settings or under Advanced Settings when you edit a deployment!

# SSH into your instance

# (Optional) if you want to create a service account
sudo adduser -m artie
sudo su artie
mkdir ~/.ssh

# Add the public key to ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
vi ~/.ssh/authorized_keys

chmod 700 ~/.ssh
chmod 600 ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
