Setting Project Orca to make proxies on AWS.
In this guide, we're going to go over how we can make proxies on AWS with Project: Orca.
If you don't have an AWS account already, go to https://aws.amazon.com/ec2/, and make your account.
- Once you have your AWS account, log-in to the console and you should see your name/account name. Click on that and this drop-down should pop-up.
- Click on security credentials.
Now you should be on this page:
- Click on access keys, and you should see this.
- Click on create the new key, and you should see the option to download your API keys. Save these keys; you'll need them.
- Now we just need to do two more things in the console to get Project Orca ready. On the left panel, you should see a tab that says Security Groups, click on that.
- Now at the top of the screen, click on actions and there should be a dropdown.
- First, click on Edit inbound rules and then change Destination from Custom to Anywhere.
- Now the same thing, click on Actions, and now click on outbound rules. Change Destination from Custom to Anywhere.
- We're done with that part. Now on the left bar, you should see a tab called Key Pairs, click on that.
- Once you've clicked that, on the top click on Create Key Pair.
- Fill that out. You do not need to save or remember this.
- Head over to the Project Orca Info page and enter your API keys.
- Now on Project Orca's home-page, you can now generate your proxies.
Increasing your proxy limit on AWS.
- Now if you just got an AWS account they have a soft limit on your account where you can only generate 8 or so proxies, we need to change this.
Head over to https://console.aws.amazon.com/support/home?#/
- Click on "Create case."
- and fill the entire form out.
