I am trying hard to setup the remote farm machine but successfull in this.I have searched a lot in google and i found one video related to this but very bad explanation.Please help me how to do this in design space explorer in quartus prime using ssh.
Thanks in advance..!
What operating system are you using? Windows or Linux?
Could you try to run quartus_dse --help in the command prompt?
It will print out the following online help related to ssh:
Before running an ssh remote compilation, be sure you can ssh to
the remote host without having to enter a password or private
key passphrase. Check the following:
1. Confirm the public ssh key pair that corresponds to
the private ssh key you want to use is appended to the
user's ~/.ssh/authorized_keys2 file on the remote host.
2. Windows PuTTY users (skip if connecting from Linux):
PuTTY uses a different ssh key file format called *.ppk.
A Linux ssh private key (id_rsa) file needs to be converted
to the *.ppk format using puttygen.
Run puttygen and click on its Conversions->Import key menu option.
Then press "Save private key" to enter a filename for the ppk file.
3. Run the ssh key agent and register the private ssh key
with the key agent program. This is a one-time setup to decrypt
private ssh keys and make them accessible to the ssh client.
Note: This step needs to be repeated every time the machine is rebooted.
Linux example adding private key to key agent:
> ssh-add <path to private ssh key>
Windows PuTTY example adding private key to key agent:
> pageant <path to private ssh key>.ppk
4. Remote connect to host and confirm connection can
be completed without having to enter password or passphrase.
> ssh -i <private ssh key file> -l <user name> hostname
> plink -i <private key *.ppk file> -l <user name> hostname
Linux SSH Example 1: Launch an ssh Remote Compilation To a Remote Linux Host.
> quartus_dse --launcher ssh --num-seeds 2
Windows SSH Example 2a: Using PuTTY's ssh Client to Launch
an ssh Remote Compilation to a Remote Linux Host:
Start the PuTTY ssh key agent
> pageant c:\mykeys\my_pkey.ppk
The path to plink.exe and the private key
should use the '/' character and can not contain any spaces.
The ssh-farm-args arguments should be on one line.
It is split for readability here.
> quartus_dse --num-seeds 2 --launcher ssh
Windows SSH Example 2b: Windows Local Host Using PuTTY's plink Client to
Launch to Windows Running a Cygwin sshd Server:
Paths that are to be used by the remote host need to
use /cygdrive/. References to the shared S:\ path are
mapped to /cygdrive/s on the remote Windows host.
> pageant c:\mykeys\my_pkey.ppk
> quartus_dse --launcher ssh
