PPK and PEM files show up in many of the AWS labs, and often people have a few questions.
- Where do I get the PPK and PEM files I need?
Both the PPK file and the PEM file (if you need it) can be downloaded from your lab instructions. Find the Connection Details at the top right of your lab instructions screen. Click the down arrow. Then, you'll see a menu you can use to download the file you need.
- I downloaded the files. Now what?
Your lab instructions will tell you when and where to upload your PPK or PEM file. Use the file browser tool to find the file, select it, and upload it.
TIP: Trouble finding it? It's probably in your "Downloads" folder. If it's not, check your browser's download history. Or, check the last folder you downloaded a file to.
