I run the scripts aws-get-ps, aws-start, and aws-ssh. Everything seems to work. But I then get prompted for a pw:
Enter passphrase for key ‘/home/john/.ssh/aws-key-fast-ai.pem’:
I’m not sure what to enter her, and when I type nothing appears and the cursor does not move. I tried typing anyway, and entered the PW I saved from the AWS install video, but when I hit enter the prompt displayed again. In lecture 1 there is no discussion about a password. Should I need to enter a pw here? If so, how? If not, why am I getting this prompt? Any help greatly appreciated.
Also, in case it matters, there is no file “aws-key-fast-ai.pem” is dir .ssh. There is however a file named “aws-key.pem”. I copied aws-key.pem over to aws-key-fast-ai.pem. Hopefully that was the correct fix for the reference to aws-key-fast-ai.pem in the aws-ssh alias.
Edit: I also noticed that aws-key.pem is an empty file. Is it supposed to be empty?
Edit 2: I deleted all instances using the AWS dashboard and started over. I ran setup_p2.sh which seemed to run correctly. From the dashboard I can see that I created an instance and it is running. However, when I attempt to ssh in I again get the prompt to enter a passphrase, although it does not appear that I can enter any text at the prompt. And I’m not sure what I would enter, anyway.
