Connecting to a Cluster

You can access a cluster created in Altus in the same way that you access other CDH clusters. You can use SSH to connect to a service port in the cluster. If you use SSH, you might need to modify the security group in your cloud service provider to allow an SSH connection to your instances from the public Cloudera IP addresses. You can create clusters with public IP addresses using an environment that has the Public IPs option enabled.

If you create a cluster using an environment with the Public IPs option enabled, you can use the Altus client to set up a SOCKS proxy server to access the Cloudera Manager instance in the cluster.

For more information about setting up an SSH connection to the cluster, see SSH Connection. For more information about using the CLI to set up a SOCKS proxy, see SOCKS Proxy.
