    Missed the meeting but have an AWS question. We use Security Groups/Rules to control access to our instances...but the rules are based on fixed ip addresses. How do we handle access from our laptop at a coffee shop (where the address is different each time)? I don't want to edit the rules each there another way (two factor authentication? credentials? rules based on mac address?) Any ideas would be welcome, thanks.

      We are putting a proxy server into place for some protected web applications until they are released into the public. Otherwise we have a jump/bridge server(s) that we use to for direct ssh access to all our AWS resources along with a corporate VPN.

      We have a script that edits the SG rules to add the public IP of the machine and start the SSH connection. The change takes effect quickly, so it doesn't delay much.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
