I have SSH access to a CentOS server.

There I have a venv with Python 3 where I have Jupyter Notebooks installed.

If I create a notebook

jupyter notebook

It gives me a localhost URL with a specific token.

Example: http://localhost:[PORT]/?token=[TOKEN]

As I want to access that URL on the local Windows machine, how do I do that using MobaXterm?

Now configure it accordingly to your needs.

Taking the example mentioned in the question, we will have the following:

Local Clients

  • Forwarded Port: [PORT]

Remote Server

  • Remote Server: localhost

  • Remote Port: [PORT]

SSH Server

  • SSH server: Name of the server one is connecting to

  • SSH login: Username to login to the server

  • SSH port: 22
