Hi phareaux,

thanks for the (pro)tip! Usually inline figures are good enough for me, but this sounds great.

Hi Nic,
sounds like port 8888 might already be in use on your machine. If that's the case, it should show in the output of
"netstat -tulpn | grep 8888" (might need root)
You can try any other port above 1024 :)

Hi ilciavo, thanks for your comment! Perhaps there is a security setting on your machine which blocks that specific port of "localhost"?

Ah, good to know it works! :)

By the way, you don't have to keep both ssh connections open. I usually use screen or tmux on the remote server to keep my remote session alive. This way, I only have to login once to start the IPython notebook server, then I can detach the session and logout.

That should work as well, yes. Is there a problem with the first step?
