Tool Setup for Lab Zero

Setting up your Computer with GENI Tools

Some of the tutorials will require you have a laptop that has:

  1. An ssh client (Instructions)
  2. Chrome and Firefox browsers (Instructions)

1. SSH Client

1.1 Install ssh client

Mac OS X/Linux

Mac OS X and Linux come with an ssh client you can run from a Terminal window. You do not need to install anything. Proceed to the Test SSH with Keys section below.

Windows

Recommended Install Putty, a free SSH client for Windows:

1.2 Test SSH with keys

You should have received a copy of an SSH private key by email. (PuTTY users should use the key file with PuTTY in it's name.)

To test your setup you will need this information:

  • username: sshtest
  • hostname: pc1.geni.it.cornell.edu
  • port: 29490
  • passphrase for private key: v3rify

In the instructions below, skip the step about downloading a private key and just use the key provided though email.
Mac OS X/Linux/Cygwin : Follow these instructions. If you see the prompt sshtest@sshtest:~$ you are all set!
Windows : Follow these instructions. If you see the prompt sshtest@sshtest:~$ you are all set!

2. Install Chrome and Firefox browsers
