Running Jupyter Notebook on a remote server#

Follow the following steps to use Jupyter Notebook launched from remote server.

  1. Launch Jupyter Notebook from remote server, selecting a port number for <PORT>:

    # Replace <PORT> with your selected port number
    jupyter notebook --no-browser --port=<PORT>

    For example, if you want to use port number 8080, you would run the following:

    jupyter notebook --no-browser --port=8080

    Or run the following command to launch with default port:

    jupyter notebook --no-browser

    Please note the port setting. You will need it in the next step.

  2. You can access the notebook from your remote machine over SSH by setting up a SSH tunnel. Run the following command from your local machine:

    # Replace <PORT> with the port number you selected in the above step
    # Replace <REMOTE_USER> with the remote server username
    # Replace <REMOTE_HOST> with your remote server address
    ssh -L 8080:localhost:<PORT> <REMOTE_USER>@<REMOTE_HOST>

    The above command opens up a new SSH session in the terminal.

  3. Open a browser from your local machine and navigate to http://localhost:8080/, the Jupyter Notebook web interface. Replace 8080 with your port number used in step 1.
