Recently I was able to successfully connect to DevCloud using 64-bit PuTTY version 0.70 on Windows 10 version 1809 using these instructions: https://devcloud.intel.com/datacenter/learn/connect-with-ssh-windows.
Subsequently, when I try to connect, the plink program goes bererk by recursively creating instances of itself until the system runs out of memory.
I have done the following to no avail:
- Update PuTTY to version 0.73 (current version).
- Download the devcloud-access-key-xxxxx.ppk file again several times, and yes it is loaded into pageant before running PuTTY.
- Proxy is set to type=Local, Proxy hostname=proxy, Port=80, Telnet/proxy command="C:\Program Files\PuTTY\plink.exe" firstname.lastname@example.org -nc %host:%port
- Session Hostname=uxxxx@c009, Port=22.
- Reconfirm intial connection sequence via the document: OK.
Certainly this is a PuTTY rather than a DevCloud issue, but if anyone has a suggestion I'd appreciate it.
Thanks for reaching out to us.
We have tried it out from our end and it is working fine.
Please try to uninstall PuTTY and try installing it after downloading putty.exe from the following url.
( https://the.earth.li/~sgtatham/putty/latest/w64/putty.exe )
Also, make sure that you had downloaded the key from chrome/mozilla firefox as mentioned in devcloud.intel.com
Hope this helps.If you are still facing any issue please share the screenshot of the error that you are getting.We would be glad to help you.
Still no luck. Tried (1) the direct .exe-only download, (2) reinstalling using the .msi, and (3) downloading the key again (which I've always done with Chrome anyway)
I was just able to get this operational procedure to work on a differerent machine, and I can still connect on that machine after a reboot.
On this machine, though, I still get the same behavior. When I open the connection, PuTTY invokes plink thousands of times (or plink is invoking itself).
There is no error to share via a screenshot.
Still hunting around on the Internet to see if anyone else has experienced this, but haven't found anything.
If the Default Session settings accidently end up the the plink setting used for DevCloud you will see the behavior I described. (From StackExchange https://superuser.com/questions/783857/excessive-plink-processes-using-putty-proxy).
1. Under Proxy, set Proxy type=None and Telnet command=connect %host %port\n
2. Under Sessions, select Default Session to make it the active selection, and click Save.
