ssm-tunnel-agent for ssm-tunnel script from aws-ssm-tools package

Project description


This file / package should be installed on the EC2 instance through which you want to tunnel traffic to its VPC.

It is useless on its own, it should be used with [ssm-tunnel] from aws-ssm-tools.


The agent requires Python 2.7 or newer and has no external dependencies. It should work out of the box on any recently installed Amazon Linux 2 instance.

The easiest way to install the agent is from PyPI repository:

sudo pip install aws-ssm-tunnel-agent

If pip command is not available you can download it straight from GitHub:

sudo curl -o /usr/local/bin/ssm-tunnel-agent
sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/ssm-tunnel-agent

Hint: these commands can be copy & pasted to an ec2-session command prompt :)
