Hybridfox is great tools for connecting with our cloud server. When you configure HPCloud server, then you should have this for manage your security groups and allowing several ports to be open. Because default group in HPCloud only allowing SSH port only.
I use the latest Firefox (10 and always updated through update-manager). Then you should download add-on for hybridfox and remember to pick the correct version ” hybridfox-1.6.000112.xpi ” on http://code.google.com/p/hybridfox/downloads/list. Using another version may give error results.
Download and use “Open file” in Firefox to install this add-on. You should restart your Firefox and on “Tools” menu, you should see “HybridFox”. Don’t open it yet, because it will show pop-up. If you have, then you should cancel all confirmation box pop-up by Hybridfox.
Go to your HPCloud, Go to “Account” and select API Keys. I have two region here, but I pick the first one for example. Show access key and secret key “EC2 Compability” :
You should copy this both key into your text editor. Because when you open HybridFox, you can’t switch window.
Then open you Hybridfox, click on Region to add AZ-.
For instance, I add :
Now, you can add your instance by click on Credentials :
You can insert your access key and secret key.
After connecting, go to Security Group
Go to “Group permission” and click on check(V). Then you can fill it with what kind of port you will open for.
