Accessing your AMIMOTO keyfile

Whether you are on Managed Hosting with AMIMOTO or using the AMIMOTO AMI on The AWS Marketplace you'll have a unique SSH key.

Passwords are disabled by default on AMIMOTO servers. In favor of passwords we use a keyfile for added security and it's required to make your first connection.

Depending on which service you are using, you may have a different keyfile.

AMIMOTO Managed Hosting

For Managed Hosting your key file should look something like id_rsa.a123. This keyfile can be found and downloaded from your AMIMOTO Dashboard and Server Info Panel.

Along with the keyfile you'll need your server address and username. The server address and username can be found in in your AMIMOTO Dashboard under the Server Info Panel.

For more details on that check our guide to Managed Hosting access and credentials.

AMIMOTO AMI on Amazon Web Services

While launching an AMIMOTO AMI on Amazon Web Services you'll assign or create a key to that EC2 Instance. That unique keyfile will give you SSH and SFTP access to that Instance.

Adding connection details Transmit

To connect to your AMIMOTO server with Transmit, you'll need the address, username, and keyfile.

Add your connection info and select the key icon in the password field.

Navigate to the location where you've placed your keyfile and select it. Transmit will store your keyfile for later use and you can save these connection details as a favorite or within a group.
