This page explains how to connect to our frontends using PuTTY.
If you want to use graphical applications on our cluster, PuTTY is not the right choice, please have a look at MobaXterm.
Creating an SSH Key with PuTTYgen
- Open PuTTYgen
- Click 'Generate' and follow instructions
- Enter a passphrase for the key
- Save private key
To upload a key, please log into your account on the GWDG Website, go to “My Account”. Then scroll down to “Other Settings” and click “edit”. You can now add a public key.
You have to use the contents of the top box in PuTTYgen, which is the correctly formatted public key.
Using PuTTY without Agent (insite GÖNET)
- Open PuTTY
- Put in Hostname
- Go to “SSH”
- Select “Auth”
- Browse to your key
- Click Open
- If you secured your key with a passphrase (which we highly recommend), you will be asked to enter it
