I am trying to use jupyter notebook from a remote and I know I am able to access it using port tunneling when I ssh:
ssh -L 8000:localhost:8888 firstname.lastname@example.org
as when I launch a jupyter notebook on the server and open a browser and go to
http://localhost:8000/ I reach jupyter notebook. But it queues me for a password that I never set up.
If I try to set up a password using:
jupyter notebook --generate-config
jupyter notebook password
and setting a password. This password does not get stored in my jupyter_notebook_config.json file and I get invalid credentials using this password or the hash stored in the json file.
I don't want to be prompted for a password at all! But at the very least I would want to be able to login with the password I specify.
I have worked through all the suggestions I could find so far to no avail.
