The following prerequisites have to be done only once per tenant.
To Start an SSH Session to an endpoint you have access to simply run:
ezssh ssh -e USERNAME@ENDPOINT
EZSSH will start the SSH Session in a new window.
You can fine tune your request with the following optional parameters:
By default EZSSH creates all the SSH Connections to port 22. If your endpoint has SSH enabled in a different port you can specify the port by adding a
-p or a
-port to the EZSSH command. Example:
ezssh ssh -e USERNAME@ENDPOINT -p 840
If you want to change the default length of time the certificate is valid for, you can specify the
--certLength or option to specify the amount of hours you want your certificate to be valid for (Valid range is 1-MAX_POLICY_LENGTH). Example:
ezssh ssh -e USERNAME@ENDPOINT -l 8
If you use Azure Networking JIT EZSSH can make the request to open it for you. Enter
-jit for EZSSH to open a JIT request on your behalf.
ezssh ssh -e USERNAME@ENDPOINT -j
If you use a jump box (bastion server) and require to use the same credential to authenticate to the second endpoint, EZSSH will ensure the that the certificate is forwarded Note: The private key never leaves your PC. Enter
-A for EZSSH to forward the certificate to the bastion server.
ezssh ssh -e USERNAME@ENDPOINT -A
