AWS ssh

I'm having difficulty logging into my amazon web services account through SSH. I originally tried to access the account as I normally do on my local machine, but Replit said that the public key, which I uploaded as a file, was too public and would be ignored.

Then I tried to add it as an environmental variable. But, then I can only access it through a python script (I ssh through the console shell).

I normally ssh with 'ssh -i <file path> <user> @ <ip>' but I can't do that in replit. How have others solved this?


To the extent of my knowledge you cannot SSH from or into a Repl. There is a feedback post requesting it and the team replied back saying they'll look into it so keep your fingers crossed!
