Direct SSH Gateway Access to Peregrine
Directly access Peregrine from your office, lab, or home.
Many tightly-secured facilities do not allow outside VPN software or connections to external VPNs. The peregrine-ssh.nrel.gov login node allows direct SSH access to Peregrine for users outside of NREL. The SSH Gateway (hpcsh.nrel.gov), does not provide direct access, making some processes more challenging.
Before you can access peregrine-ssh.nrel.gov, you must have:
Logging into peregrine-ssh.nrel.gov
With your HPC account and your configured OTP token generator ready, simply SSH to peregrine-ssh.nrel.gov.
When you connect, you will be prompted for Password+OTP_Token
If your password is perfectNorth-Nov11
and the token reads 123456
you would type: perfectNorth-Nov11123456
Upon successful login, you'll be presented with a local system message and a prompt from which you can begin using Peregrine.
8-hour Session Limits and Maintenance
This system is patched regularly and connection interruptions may occur. Additionally, there is an 8-hour connection time limit. We recommend taking advantage of tools such as tmux and screen for session management that will accommodate the ephemeral nature of Internet connected sessions.
