To SSH into a running Cloud.com CloudStack server.
Table of Contents
Before you can successfully SSH into a public server, you must first assign it a public IP address with the appropriate port forward rules (firewall permissions). If you are attempting to SSH into a private server, you'll need to disable port forwarding as well as multiple subnets.
Only the CloudStack administrator can provision public IP addresses. You can associate a public IP to any running server, but it cannot be associated to more than one server at a time. If an unassigned public IP address is not available, contact the CloudStack administrator.
Note: Port forwarding rules apply to an IP address and not to the running instance. So, if you terminate an instance that was assigned an IP (e.g. 126.96.36.199), which had port forwarding rules for TCP ports 22 and 80, and then you assign the same public IP to a new server, it will automatically apply its existing port forwarding rules.
To be able to SSH into a private IP, you will need to disable port fowarding rules and multiple subnets.
