At Cloud 66 we believe in making your life that little bit easier, and today we’re happy to announce a new feature in our toolbelt that does just this. Instead of opening port 22 on your server, downloading your SSH key, setting permissions on it and finally logging into your server, we’ve made this really simple for you.

You can now use theCloud 66 Toolbelt to directly SSH into your servers! For a server named_frontend_, you simply type

c66 ssh -n frontend


What just happened? This command will…

  1. Download the SSH key of the server
  2. Lease SSH access on the firewall for 20 minutes
  3. Start a native SSH session to the server

By using the save command to link the folder you’re in to the stack, you don’t need to specify a stack. Enjoy!
