Fix VSCode SSH Issues

  • If your VSCode suddenly stopped ssh to linprog, then try the following method:

Use either Tectia (on Windows) or a Terminal (on Mac) and SSH connection to linprog using your CS account.

Once you sign in, run the command:

mv $HOME/.vscode-server $HOME/.vscode-server-bad

Now, go back to VSCode and ssh to linprog again. It will take a few minutes for vscode to install the required components on linprog (longer if your home network is slow).

  • VScode SSH config example
Host linprog    
User yourcsusername
MACs hmac-sha2-256

(replace yourcsusername with your real CS username)
