SSH through purgatory
NOTE: The CSR folks will have to grant you permission to ssh into purgatory.
On windows you will need to install some kind of ssh client. Some options:
- cygwin (with openssh installed??) [this is a full linux-y implementation on windows]
- Putty - a little standalone client [you'll need to figure this out -- when you do, put it here]
Create an ssh tunnel in linux-ish environment
This assumes you want to go to jp1 and your username is "<username>". If your username is the same, then leave off "<username>@".
ssh -N -L22000:<username>@jp1.chem.byu.edu:22 <username>@purgatory.chem.byu.edu
Now, leave that window alone and open a new terminal:
# log in to the internal server ssh -p 22000 <username>@localhost # scp stuff from the internal server scp -P 22000 localhost:~/somefile.txt ./ # copy files from the internal server to local # mount a folder from the internal server locally using sshfs sshfs -o follow_symlinks -p 22000 localhost:/home/<user>/<internal_dir> /home/<user>/mnt fusermount -u /home/<user>/mnt # to unmount sshfs
Cut and Paste Instructions
If your user names are the same and you have your mounts in the chem directory on jp2, you can run this (make sure you have a $HOME/chem folder already made (mkdir $HOME/chem):
ssh -N -L22000:jp2.chem.byu.edu:22 puragotory.chem.byu.edu
In a new terminal:
sshfs -o follow_symlinks -p 22000 localhost:$HOME/chem $HOME/chem
Setup ssh tunnel with gstm
sudo aptitude install gstm
Virtual Private Network (VPN)
sudo aptitude install vpnc network-manager-vpnc
Connect with vpnc command line client
sudo vpnc Enter IPSec gateway address: vpn.chem.byu.edu Enter IPSec ID for vpn.chem.byu.edu: <YOUR GROUP> Enter IPSec secret for Faculty@vpn.chem.byu.edu: <SPECIAL GROUP PASSWORD> Enter username for vpn.chem.byu.edu: <USERNAME> Enter password for firstname.lastname@example.org: <YOUR CHEMISTRY PASSWORD>
<YOUR GROUP> == Faculty or Research?? or Staff?? or Postdoc?? Students?? Must see CSR's in person to get the IPSec secret for your group.
Connect with vpnc wireless applet config
Left click your network indicator and you will see the VPN connections menu. Set it up, then start it.
