SSH access is provided in an isolated Docker container per research group. To access it you need to SSH to a specific port in the core server.
This is the port information:
You can SSH with:
ssh -pYOUR_GROUP_PORT YOUR_USER@carnation.dbs.umt.edu
Change your YOUR_GROUP_PORT and YOUR_USER accordingly
The above instructions work for Linux and Mac. For Windows, please check your client software.
File copy is done via SFTP or SCP. Plain FTP is not available
Note that SCP uses -P (capital P) for the port. SSH uses (as shown above) -p (small p). Do not confuse both.
Access to Jupyter Notebooks
You need to create a SSH tunnel:
ssh -L443:localhost:443 -pYOUR_GROUP_PORT YOUR_USER@carnation.dbs.umt.edu
Then point the your browser to https://127.0.0.1
If you have off-site backups with us and are the designated backup adminstator you can login by doing:
ssh -p YOUR_GROUP_PORT firstname.lastname@example.org
YOUR_GROUP_PORT is as in section above. Note that the user is check.
(you will need to have a password issued seperately for this)
