Connecting to your Intel® IoT Gateway using SSH

In order to perform advanced configuration of the Intel® IoT Gateway either a monitor and keyboard, or a Secure Shell (SSH) connection is required. On OS X® and Linux* there are default programs that can do this - Screen and SSH respectively. However on Windows* no default ssh client exists, however PuTTY is light weight and easy to install and can be used to SSH into the Intel® IoT Gateway.

For Windows* users:

Note: In the screen shots below, is the IP Address of the Intel® IoT Gateway being connected to. Replace that IP Address with the IP Address of your Intel® IoT Gateway. That is the IP Address that should be displayed on the LCD Panel attached to your Arduino 101* (branded Genuino 101* outside the U.S.).

1. Visit the PuTTY download page.

2. Under the For Windows on Intel x86 heading, click on the putty.exe link to download the latest release version to your computer. Or if you prefer to use an installer that includes all of the additional tools like PSCP and PSFTP click the putty-0.67-installer.exe link (or latest version).

3. Double-click putty.exe on your computer to launch PuTTY, or run the installer to install it if you chose to download it. Then run PuTTY.

4. Enter IP address of the Intel® IoT Gateway.
