Let's get up and running with OCaml and the Ontario Reasearch & Education VCL Cloud.
Go visit the VCL Cloud home page
Create A Reservation
Figure out how long you want the server for.
Make sure you grab the correct version
And now you can connect
When the box is ready, you will be given the necessary login instruction
If you are running on Windows then you might not have an
available (if that's no longer the case, please let me know).
Here are two possible clients to log into the machine
If you are on a Mac, then open
Terminal and you can access
from the console.
SSH into the Box
Now that you have an SSH, copy the information from VLC to log into your newly reserved box. DO NOT BLINBLY COPY the details below as your username and password will be different.
$ ssh firstname.lastname@example.org
You will be asked about the authenticity of the host, to proceed you will have to say "yes"
The authenticity of host '126.96.36.199 (188.8.131.52)' can't be established. ECDSA key fingerprint is SHA256:ED0vMKplAN3JZycg1F1ltpOEp7/9rtoMer0+STCgGc0. Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no/[fingerprint])? yes Warning: Permanently added '184.108.40.206' (ECDSA) to the list of known hosts.
Now you can enter the one-time use password
And now we care
