  1. In the Resources menu, select Elastic IPs.
  1. Click on Allocate New Address
  1. Select VPC for allocation and confirm (Yes, Allocate)

  1. Choose to associate your Elastic IP with an instance. In the Instance field, select your Stormshield Network Security for Cloud new instance and click on Yes, Associate.
  1. You can access the Stormshield Network Administration Console with your web browser using the link https://<EC2 Instance FQDN or IP>/admin, where <EC2 Instance FQDN or IP> is the FQDN or IP of the EC2 instance running Stormshield Network Security for Cloud.

  1. The default login is admin, and the default password is your EC2 instance ID (available in the EC2 Instances console).


You will be prompted to change the admin account password at the first logon on your Stormshield Network Security for Cloud instance.
