How to connect to the mésocentre
After your project registration and approval (proposal for project), user accounts are created. Please note that they are personal and non-transferable! It means that you can not land your login to another person.
The login servers are the entry gates to mésocentre, you can access it via a secure protocol SSH with SSH keys. The deposit of the public key is done on the management interface copernicus.
The login details and a temporary password for access to copernicus, are sent by email when creating the account.
SSH connection from GNU/Linux or Mac OS :
SSH tools are installed by default and you can connect to the login server from terminal window.
SSH connection from Windows :
You have to install an SSH client like Putty or cygwin. Be careful, the multiple compromised version of these programs are available for downloading on various websites. So, make sure that you download your SSH client directly from the official website.
If you have an error while connecting with Putty client, like “SSH2_MSG_UNIMPLEMENTED packet error with PuTTY”, please, follow the instruction published at this webpage.
