I am having a problem using ssh and ipcluster. I&#39;ve set up a profile for an ssh cluster using the directions in the documentation. This configuration works fine when I use ipcontroller --profile=ssh --reuse, and start engines using ipengine --profile=ssh, on the remote machine. However, when I try to do the same using ipcluster ssh dies with at &quot;Connection to host closed&quot;, with exit_code 255. I can ssh(passwordlessly) just fine to the remote host. <br>


<br>I haven&#39;t changed much from the default profile created, other than setting<br><br><pre><span>c</span><span>.</span><span>HubFactory</span><span>.</span><span>ip</span> <span>=</span> <span>&#39;*&#39;</span></pre>


in ipcontroller_config.py and<br><pre><span>c</span><span>.</span><span>IPClusterEngines</span><span>.</span><span>engine_launcher</span> <span>=</span> \

<br></span></pre>in ipcluster_config.py, as well as setting the path to the profile directory. Any ideas?<br><br>Ben Edwards<br>
