[IPython-dev] Remote connection to IPython kernel
Thu Oct 20 14:35:43 CDT 2011
I am trying to run an Ipython server on a distant machine with SSH
(preferably the notebook) but I couldn't figure out how to do. So far, I
have tried two approaches:
- run a webnotebook on the server, listening on 127.0.0.1:8888, tunnel the
port to my machine mymachine:9999 and access it with my local browser.
With this setup, I can see a list of notebooks and can apparently edit them
but no cell is evaluated. It looks very strange to me as the notebook works
correctly if I use a browser running on the server. Is it a websocket
problem (both browsers are recent enough)
- try to adapt the follow the instructions given in the doc for the
connection over ssh. However, when I run the kernel on the server, it
doesn't print the list of ports anymore but gives the name of a json file. I
understand this is the new system to store connection informations but I
don't know how to use it over the network. I tried --existing
--ssh=myserver but it doesn't work (yet ?).
Is there currently a way to run a kernel over ssh ? I understand the target
is moving quite fast and I am following the progress with great interest.
