Private Instance with EC2

RE: Private Instance with EC2
They are passed as the "user data" when you launch the instances on EC2 (either through the API or if you use the UI there is a text box that you paste it into). They are used to pass configuration information to the test agent without having to edit anything on the instance itself.

The ubuntu server doesn't need to know the agent IP address. The test agents connect outward to the server and poll the server for work (and post results to the server). This DOES mean that the server needs to be reachable from the Internet for them to connect to it though (I'm planning on working on a relay which will eliminate that need).
