Connecting to your QMI with SSH

While logged in to your QCS dashboard, locate the card labeled Quantum Machine Image.

Open your Terminal and ssh into your QMI by typing:

ssh forest@<QMI_IP_ADDRESS>

Note: if you receive the following prompt "Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)?," then confirm by entering yes.

Congrats! You're now connected to your QMI—you should see the following welcome message in your terminal:

You also now have the ability to power off your QMI right from the console by clicking the "Stop" button in the bottom right corner. You can also power it back on, open Jupyter Notebooks right from the new user interface.

Using PuTTY For users with older versions of Windows, you may need to use PuTTY to generate an SSH key. We recommend this guide for help doing so.

Once you've generated an SSH key using PuTTY, use the following command in your terminal to connect to your Quantum Machine Image:

putty -ssh forest@<QMI_IP_ADDRESS>
