Useful FAQ’s and tutorials

Here’s a quick index of some of the great information available via our site that will allow you to handle a variety of scenarios:

**The Situation** **The Response**
**Access the MySQL database within a JumpBox** While we typically discourage people from accessing the internals of a JumpBox unless it's absolutely necessary, you may have a need that demands the ability to run queries against the datbase inside the JumpBox. It's possible to unblock external access to the database and expose it for remote access on the network. This [FAQ]( explains the steps involved in doing so.
**Send email from a JumpBox** JumpBoxes ship with the ability to send email but you may be running it on a network that blocks the port used for email to curb spamming. It's possible to set up an authenticated mail relay and have the JumpBox route the email through an external server. This [FAQ]( will show you how it's done.
**Connect to a JumpBox behind a firewall** If you're running your JumpBox on premise within your company, you may want to be able to access it from home. You can configure your router to port-forward the traffic making it accessible. The instructions for doing so are dependent on various environmental factors but this [FAQ]( will get you started.
**Synchronize the date/time of a JumpBox** Suspending virtual machines can produce time anomalies in the applications. You may need to re-synchronize the time of your JumpBox. There are manual and automatic approaches for re-sync'ing the time. This [FAQ]( explains the available methods.
**FTP files into a JumpBox** You may need to manually edit a config file or swap out a logo on an application where there is no built-in web-based mechanism for doing so. You can enable SFTP access to your JumpBox and then transfer files into it as you would with a remote server. This [FAQ]( explains how and this [tutorial]( shows how to edit the files in a JumpBox using a graphical SFTP client.
**Deploy a JumpBox on EC2** You might need to quickly proof an application to a client or a colleague without wanting to set up a public dedicated instance. You can use Amazon EC2 and quickly bring up a blank JumpBox that you control. This [tutorial]( shows how it's done. You'd then use the [restore feature]( to inject the data from your local instance into the remote instance on EC2\. Plus and Premium customers have access to all the JumpBoxes while everyone else has access to the [free JumpBoxes](

Lastly, the good folks at Amazon recently wrote a post about us. If you’d like to be able to run JumpBoxes on their EC2 Cloud Computing system consider purchasing a subscription. As always, thanks for your interest in JumpBox and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
