Getting a free (12 Months) Quasselcore from Amazon

Amazon currently offers 12 Months of free access to a small EC2 instance - but thats more than enough to run a quasselcore. I tried it and documented the needed steps

  • create a new instance, using the “amazon linux” setting and save your keys!

  • go to the instances tab, and copy your hostname

  • now you need to forward the quassel port

  • chmod 0400 Downloads/quasselcore_ec2.pem
  • ssh -i Downloads/quasselcore_ec2.pem ec2-user@ec2-12-34-56-789.compute-1.amazonaws.com
  • sudo adduser -m quassel; sudo yum install screen; sudo su quassel;
  • ./quasselcore-static-0.7.3 → and ctrl+c (we do this so the directory for the cert are created)
  • openssl req -x509 -nodes -days 365 -newkey rsa:1024 -keyout ~/.config/quassel-irc.org/quasselCert.pem -out ~/.config/quassel-irc.org/quasselCert.pem
  • screen -R quasselcore
  • sudo su quassselcore; cd; ./quasselcore-static-0.7.3 –listen=
  • connect your client to ec2-12-34-56-789.compute-1.amazonaws.com
