Configure Firewall and AWS Security Groups

When you run the instance, be sure to configure the AWS firewall. When you initially run the instance, the 3389 port is open to all IP addresses. Change the firewall settings to reflect your IP address only. For security purposes, limit Internet exposure to only your IP address.

Additionally, you can create an AWS security group that provides similar security protection as the firewall settings.

For more information, please see Security Groups for Your VPC.

Retrieve a Windows Password

You must retrieve a Windows password through the Amazon Marketplace website. Amazon assigns a random default password to the administrator account.

You must know the key pair to retrieve a password. The key pair was created when you created the AWS account.

You need this password when you run through the U-Series Appliance Configuration Wizard.

Select Get Windows Password from the pop-up menu

Right-click the instance and select Get Windows Password.
