    The course lab files can be accessed by following instructions provided directly in the 3.1 exercise. Please note that depending on your software, if you are cutting and pasting instructions given in the PDF, the underscores may disappear and be replaced by spaces, so you may have to edit the command line by hand.

    You can also follow instructions in Chapter 1 (Introduction > Course Resources) to download course resources.

    I followed instructions provided in Chapter 1 and I was able to access course resources. Please try again.

    Hi @ebabade,

    You may have typos in your command. In addition to editing for the two underscores, ensure that there are spaces preceding the --user and the --password flags. Removing the backslash "\" and converting the multi-line command into a single line command may also help.

    Regards,
    -Chris

    @chrispokorni I just got it, thanks. Do I have to do this every time I start my instance? because I had to put in the new Ip address from AWS to start my lab today.

    Hi @ebabade,

    What type of infrastructure are you using for labs - cloud instances or local VMs? Are you behind a proxy or a firewall?

    How is your /etc/resolv.conf file configured?

    Can you access the same URL from a browser instead?

    Regards,
    -Chris

    Hi @ebabade,

    I am not sure I understand what specifically you are doing that needs the IP of the AWS EC2 instance.

    However, once the SOLUTIONS tarball has been downloaded and extracted to your instance, you can safely stop and start the instance without loss of data. The public IP address may change, unless you opt for a static public IP (a service that costs extra).

    Regards,
    -Chris

    @chrispokorni I created my lab with the setup video that was posted for AWS labs, and we had to put in the ip address from AWS into putty and opening up the command interface from there
