The "Deploying Hortonworks Sandbox on Microsoft Azure" tutorial is great, but it assumes that your local client is a Linux machine. That's where this process has broken down for me. I need the Windows equivalent of editing the ~/.ssh/config file, or something that achieves the same goal.
I am running Windows 7 with a Chrome browser. What I have achieved so far: my Azure account is configured, Hortonworks Sandbox is configured, and the instance is starting via the Azure dashboard without issue. Now I need to be able to tunnel into the instance using putty so I can actually bring up the Ambari console via the browser.
I need 5-year-old idiot step-by-step instructions on how to do this. Do not assume I know more than how to turn on the machine. I have tried about everything I can find out on the interwebs, and each one has flaws in the process that cause it to break down somehow. Please take pity on me, and thanks in advance.
