SSH into GOV.UK servers from the VM
You will need to either forward your publickey from the host machine to the VM or have your VM publickey added to your user manifest.
To confirm your key has been forwarded to the development vm you can run:
vagrant ssh # ssh onto vm ssh-add -L # list key and location on host machine
Things to check if it doesn’t work:
- Can you SSH directly onto the jumpbox?
ssh jumpbox.integration.publishing.service.gov.ukIf not, check your ssh version and config.
- Do you get a permission denied error? Make sure you’re in the user list in the govuk-secrets repo for production access, or the govuk-puppet repo for access to other environments.
- Are you connecting from outside The White Chapel Building? You’ll need to connect to the VPN first; SSH connections are restricted to the White Chapel Building IP addresses.
