Not a admin on my own intel work device, should I open a new profile with home computer and email?

Hi, 

 

Doing a lot of self learning setting up my device to use the SDK kit during my lunch hours, ran into a speed bump as my work device PowerShell won't be configured for admin privileges. I know I can't  use the Dev cloud without OpenSSH on my device, so I am asking does anyone know what to do?

I did submit a ticket to IT to sort the SSH issues, it's the only roadblock I am having from the pre-requiste documentation provided below: 

https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/administration/openssh/openssh_install_firstuse?tabs=gui

 

I do have a 4gb thinkpad at home that runs Linux(I am upgrading to 8gbs but parts take a while to arrive) , should I just use my home email to register on that device instead using the Linux guide?  I really just need to have a working terminal and internet connection to get going  when using the cloud right?  

 

Not my first time using Developer clouds, but it would be my first using Intels DevCloud. 

 

Many thanks, 

 

Jack

I don't think you will gain very much by switching to another machine.

 

I personally installed Windows Subsystem Linux on my work device in order to use Ubuntu. Intel employees can visit https://stackoverflow.intel.com/articles/17241 for a very complete explanation of the ins-and-outs of getting your device setup to connect through the proxies.

Hello Jack,

My Windows 11 PC has SSH pre-installed on it via the Windows installation, at path C:\windows\System32\OpenSSH\ssh.exe. If you are using PowerShell, you can try running Get-Command ssh, which should print the path of the program if it's installed. If it is, you can just run it normally, from either Command Prompt or PowerShell, e.g. ssh --help. If it is not, then another common (free open-source software) option for running SSH from Windows machines is using Putty (https://www.putty.org/). There should be many online guides on how to use Putty with SSH if you decide to use that path.

SSH is a very lightweight utility, so it should be able to run on a PC with very few resources.

 

I hope that helps,

Drew

Thank you, WSL is working fine for me. I am having time out issues though when I attempt to connect to the Devcloud. 

 

Have you run into them yourself and how did you solve them? Command I am running is 'ssh devcloud'. 

 

ssh: connect to host ssh.devcloud.intel.com port 22: Connection timed out
kex_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host
Connection closed by UNKNOWN port 65535

That error message looks like it is rejecting your key. When you were installing your RSA key, did you make sure to invoke bash in CLI

bash ~/Downloads/setup-devcloud-access-<user>.txt

I've noticed that it actually is dependent on bash being called there.
