How to use the CSI VPN and set up passwordless SSH access to the PC

Step-by-step guide

  • Read the instructions on the VPN client on the TFI website.
  • Copy your public key (usually unless you named it differently or it is not a RSA -key) into the .ssh/ folder on the PC, then
> cat >> authorized_keys
> chmod 600 authorized_keys
  • You ssh to the machine from within VPN CSI with
> ssh -X CSI\\username@wmpcNUMBER

Note the use of the double backslash ‘\’ in the username and the use of the CSI user group. Replace ‘NUMBER’ with your WMPC ID.
