I need to use the server (sorry, can't be more specific than that because I have no idea what I'm talking about) as part of my Trust & Safety work. I was granted server access in 2018 as karen, but when I try to access the server I am getting nothing except either error messages or absolutely nothing. I apologize for the vagueness of this request; I genuinely have no clue what I'm doing other than trying to blindly follow the documentation T&S has for this.
Here's what I've tried (following instructions written for T&S specialists who need server access) in my terminal:
- Entering "ssh -J firstname.lastname@example.org:22" to try to connect. I get an error that says "unknown option -J" (which as best I can tell means the system doesn't recognize J as an available flag for the ssh command.
- If I take out the -J and just put the rest of the command, I get ssh: Could not resolve hostname bast4001.wikimedia.org:22: Name or service not known
- Switching in my config file from bast4001 to another server (sorry, I can't find the page I took the new server name off of and I'm writing this from my laptop rather than desktop where I attempted this stuff, but I think it was [some other number]001) . Nothing.
*"ssh mwmaint1001.eqiad.wmnet" gets me no error message, but also no prompt or anything - just nothing happening and a blank line
I'm using an Ubuntu terminal on Windows 10, if that makes a difference.
Please ask me whatever you need to know to actually troubleshoot this; I apologize again for having no idea what I'm talking about and thus not being able to explain well.
