Here’s how you host a Jupyter Notebook on a remote server that you can access on your local browser. First, ssh into the remote server and type
jupyter notebook --no-browser --port=8889
You should see a token that looks like:
jupyter notebook --no-browser --port=8889 [I 16:40:54.686 NotebookApp] Serving notebooks from local directory: /home/groh [I 16:40:54.686 NotebookApp] 0 active kernels [I 16:40:54.687 NotebookApp] The Jupyter Notebook is running at: [I 16:40:54.687 NotebookApp] http://localhost:8889/?token=eb38cdxxxxxxxxx [I 16:40:54.687 NotebookApp] Use Control-C to stop this server and shut down all kernels (twice to skip confirmation). [C 16:40:54.687 NotebookApp] Copy/paste this URL into your browser when you connect for the first time, to login with a token: http://localhost:8889/?token=eb38cdxxxxxxxxx
On your local machine, type
ssh -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa -N -f -L localhost:8889:localhost:8889 firstname.lastname@example.org
And, now just copy and paste the token into your browser and you’re up and running.
