Copy your Key and enable IPv4 and IPv6

To use this key with Cycle you will need to click both Allow All IPv4/IPv6 so that you can deploy directly from our platform.

Generate Vultr SSH Keys

The following are the steps you need to generate SSH keys for your Vultr infrastructure. It will assume you have followed the API key generation guide above and are familiar with the Vultr dashboard.

  • Sign into your Vultr Account.
  • Click SSH Keys in the top navigation.
  • Choose the Add SSH Key button.
  • Name the SSH key "Cycle".
  • Paste in your rsa file and click Add SSH Key.

If for some reason Cycle becomes unresponsive and you need to rescue the files on your infrastructure, use your SSH key on port 2160 to log directly onto the Cycle OS.
