Can someone tell me if they have been able to connect to an AMI (an instance) on Amazon's EC2 directly from Absolute Telnet? It uses a private key and I'm able to connect from a command prompt from another Linux box, but I don't see where I can put the key into Absolute Telnet. I've found instructions on how to do this with Putty:
http://docs.amazonwebservices.com/AWSEC2/latest/GettingStartedGuide/

I'm a newbie to this stuff, but I think it is an RSA key??

Thank you for any help you can provide!

At connection time, when you get the login box (above), it will contain a section to enter the location of your private key. Enter it here and enable key authentication. Next time you login, it will remember these values. If your private key is encrypted, enter the passphrase in the passphrase box above.

If you have any further questions, let me know.
