Hello, I installed the RStudio AMI provided in the URL https://www.bioconductor.org/help/bioconductor-cloud-ami/

Although I am able to use the RStudio AMI through http port 80, I would also like to be able to tunnel the AWS public DNS to a localhost (as I have done many times previously). However, the AMI does not seem to provide for SSH tunneling to localhost:8787.

Questions: 1). Is a localhost (localhost:8787) restricted if I use the bioconductor AMI ? 2). I of course use a .pem file and also have changed my RStudio password, but is there any other security measure I can take since the RStudio still loads as "not secure" within my browser.

As mentioned here, we have port 22 for SSH and we configure RStudio on port 80 during setup. I'm not sure if it's possible to use localhost:8787. My colleague Nitesh pointed to this documentation: https://support.rstudio.com/hc/en-us/articles/200552316-Configuring-the-Server. Where if you open port 8787 when launching your instance (you'll need to add a security group for it), you might be able to export RSTUDIO_PORT=8787 and then change the rserver.conf file. But not entirely sure if that will work.

Thank you for the reply. Yes, I have already added the security group for 8787.
