Warp Usage for Safe Remote Login


Login

Log in to your group's least-loaded WGS:

ssh warp.zeuthen.desy.de
ssh <username>@warp.zeuthen.desy.de


Log in to a special WGS of your choice:

ssh warp.zeuthen.desy.de -t target=<wgs>


Access to internal Web Pages

Internal web pages are e.g.
       https://registry.desy.de to change the password
       https://go.desy.de/ProcessPortal for business trips and holiday requests
       and all internal group web pages

Establish an ssh tunnel to warp.
ssh has built-in support to act as a SOCKS proxy. All you have to do is use the -D option.

ssh -D localhost:2233 <username>@warp.zeuthen.desy.de


For Windows-10 an up-to-date release (at least 1909) is required!
Open the cmd promt and type the command described above.

Start your browser or other application which supports SOCKS proxies with proxy localhost and your choosen port, here 2233

Firefox

Linux: Edit->Preferences->Network
Windows-10: Tools->Options->General->Network Settings->Settings

choose "Manual proxy configuration"
SOCKS Host: localhost
Port: 2233
SOCKS v5 should work

Safari (OSX)

Preferences ->Advanced, Proxies: Change Settings

Select SOCKS Proxy
Enter as SOCKS Proxy Server:
localhost:2233

Hint: There are browser plugins to make it easier to switch between proxies.
E.g. FoxyProxy is a set of proxy management tools for Firefox and SwitchyOmega for Chrome.

All outgoing and incoming data for the browsing session will be encrypted since it passes through the SSH connection.
