The course materials for Dan Tenenbaum's course on "Bioconductor and Docker" would seem to indicate that: (1) Bioconductor's AMI images all come with Docker installed and (2) appending `:4200` to the instance's RStudio URL will make it the instance's shellinabox URL.

Running an instance of "ami-85d88de0" (bioc-3.2-starcluster-ubuntu-14.04-100GB-201510141230) of type "m3.medium" gets me a public URL that works just fine for accessing RStudio server. But when I append `:4200` to that same URL, I consistently get a "Problem loading" error page.

Should this be working, or is there some other way for me to access my running instance using shellinabox?

The link you are looking at says that shellinabox is installed on the AMI for that particular course. It is not installed on all Bioconductor AMIs.

Thanks! That's what I guessed, but the phrase "our Amazon Machine Images (AMIs)" (and lack of links to any other AMIs on that page) left room for me to wonder whether you were referring to the more generic BioConductor AMIs of the time.
