CNT5605 - 2014 Fall
Assignment 1
Due Wednesday, October 15 (no write-up necessary, just create a file on a remote server)

Your assignment is to log into using ssh over port 40053. The username is your last name. I have installed the public key that you sent me as an authorized_key, so you should be able to use the private key to login.

When I did this, it looked something like:

$ ssh -p 40053 -i ~/.ssh/cnt5605-id_rsa test@
Last login: Mon Oct 13 18:10:59 2014 from
[test@localhost ~]$ 

To show that you succeeded, please create in your home directory a file named "dekita". Inside that file, identify the server you have logged into. While you are free to use whatever you would like here, there are some reasonably standard ways to describe systems.

Extra credit

For extra credit, send email to "" from this remote machine. You can use the return email address "" for your email since the email server in Computer Science wants you to use a legitimate domain name associated with your email, and won't deliver it without something (you might want to CC yourself, just to see if you get it.) For a subject line, please include the word "dekita", and for the body of the message, describe how you managed to send the email.

When I did this, the resulting message looked like:
