To SSH into your new EC instance you wil need to use an SSH client (we suggest Muon).

You will need the EC2 instance username and the linked PEM SSH Key. Using passwords is not recommended for SSH access on AWS.

You can download the PEM SSH key from your launch history page. Hovering over the Download link will display the the SSH username you need to use.
